The Magic Storysinger – from the Finnish epic tale Kalevala
Retold and illustrated by M.E.A. McNeil
The Magic Storysinger is an adaptation of the Finnish epic tale Kalevala, retold and illustrated by M.E.A. McNeil. The marvelous, fast and furious adventures of the great mythic hero Vaino (Vainomoinen) are delightfully retold here. From his mysterious birth as the old-man son of the air maiden, to his wooing of the daughter of Louhi the witch, great feats are accomplished and great feuds settled by means of magic songs and spells. Humor, adventure and magic abound in this classic tale with a lyrical simplicity that casts its own spell. There are charming full-color illustrations throughout that capture the spirit of this unique saga, so memorably set to music by the great composer Sibelius.
