    One thought on “Elfwyn's Saga”

    1. The hand cut paper illustrations in this book are amazing This is a great book to check out if only for the illustrations However, the books also tells a good moral tale about the consequence of distraction from duty that weaves in Viking folklore and legend, like the cause behind the Northern Lights This was an enjoyable picture book read for our Middle Ages history lesson about the Vikings.In the Author s Note Wisniewski states that he used an X Acto knife and than 1,000 very sharp blades to [...]

    2. An original story in the style of the traditional Icelandic sagas The cut paper illustrations are what really make this book.

    3. The illustrations are lovely and the language flows nicely a good book for reading out loud However, I was quite disappointed that Elfwyn s blindness is cured at the end of the book, especially as this is an original story and not a folktale I think it would have been powerful to leave her disability intact.

    4. I purchased a used copy of this book because CDT is portraying this story for their spring Concert in March I m excited to see what they do with it I liked the book but it isn t one of my favorites yet.

    5. I loved the illustrations, but am debating about whether or not I want this for my classroom It d be good for 3 4th grade
