    1. A picture book based on a Norwegian fairytale, updated to feel contemporary by the also Norwegian Torsetter, whose The Hole was one of my favorite books of 2014, and whose My Father s Arms Are a Boat was one of my favorite books of 2015 This one is elaborate, and sinister and scary in places I guess I might think of it as a children s book, if the Bros Grimm s Tales can be seen that way, but I think of books of fairy tales as all ages books, really The basic story is that a man sends 6 of his [...]


    2. Just what I needed This is a book that can be shared with children yet still maintains an interest for adults the art is fantastic and the story is a lean yet balanced quest tale that will hold your interest.


    3. I actually really liked this The subtle humor and the drawings and the story Its just a very good fairytale comic



    4. This quite outlandish and fun twist on the fairy tale The Troll with No Heart, imported from Norway, is about a troll who s hidden his heart and the seventh son of a king who goes in search of his six brothers The story is told in graphic panel format with delightfully fanciful illustrations that can be as dark as they are humorous.


    5. El hermano m s peque o de toda una familia es obligado a quedarse en casa mientras el resto de sus hermanos han salido a buscar esposa, con la promesa de traer una para l Pero estos nunca vuelven, un trol los ha convertido en piedra y deber enfrentarse a l para destruir su coraz n, que es la nica forma de vencerlo, enfrent ndose para ello a multitud de retos En esta historia del galardonado autor noruego yvind Torseter, trata de encajar el cuento tradicional del folklore noruego El trol sin cora [...]


    6. Story 2 starsArt 3 starsChildren s limited palette graphic novel This story is a contemporary retelling of a Norwegian fairy tale, which I have never read, so I m not sure how close this book stays to the original story But it feels too familiar to me with the exception of the talking horse and the mystical elephant Also confusing at times Why does a prince act like a pauper and ride a nag Why does the prince and his brothers appear to be a human animal hybrid Why does the troll object to the sm [...]


    7. An interestingly illustrated retelling of a fairy tale, Torseter makes the troll haunting in a way that makes this appropriate for middle grade and up even though the actual difficulty could possibly be said to be lower It left me with a weird and creeped out feeling either from the illustrations or the confusing nature of the troll hating human blood s smell and still holding a princess captive or the really odd half beast type things that the prince and his brothers are that I can t quite fig [...]


    8. A delightful and fantastic retelling of a Norwegian fairy tale by Torseter The images are clean and clear, and Dickson s translation is sweet and hilarious Also, one imagines the princess could have saved herself at any point before the prince got there since she comes up with almost all of the ideas.





    9. La base y la estructura es la de un cuento tradicional, pero los dibujos tienen una libertad y una originalidad aclaparadora Es una delicia perderse en estas p ginas y estar atento a los detalles.


    10. A fun twist on an old fairytale called The Troll with No Heart, The Heartless Troll is a troll who s hidden his heart and the seventh son of a king who goes in search of his six brothers The young man s journey brings him to a mountain, a captive princess, and a terrifying troll The illustrations are by turns fanciful and lovely as well as dark and terrifying, but a continuous thread of good humor and playfulness runs through the whole story.



    11. Felt rather familiar but still entertaining, as a fable I enjoyed the talking animals, especially the Prince and his horse But I wasn t really a fan of the drawing style, which was very sketchy and had the Prince looking like a Moo Min or SuuPuu from Houshin Engi, and yet he was supposed to be human I did like the mixed media aspect of the art.



    12. See my full review here havekidwillteardrop 2017 During a trip to Powells last week I was chatting with a lady in the children s book section She is an artist and was holding the book called The Heartless Troll by Oyvind Torseter She collects picture books that inspire her work and this book had caught her eye and her heart I went in search of it after she showed it to me and I couldn t find it We had to run to one of the other Powells locations the following day to find a book my son was search [...]


    13. The text dialogue read as a fairly traditional folk tale, but the illustrations are just so fantastically quirky that it makes the whole thing extra delightful.



    14. An interesting take on a fairy tale As is common in fairy tales a King sends his sons off on adventure, keeping back the youngest After none of the brothers return the youngest must set off to rescue them, and perhaps find a nice wifey of his own.I kind of loved it I loved the Heartless Troll, I loved the clever twists on the story, I loved the artwork I loved that it was both silly, but also rather dark This would be good for certain children, but others might find the story and illustrations s [...]


    15. Is this a retelling of Jack and the Beanstalk Not quite, though there are similar elements Seems to be a few different ones mashed in here But no matter, because the true tale is in the illustrations, all patchworked together, with glorious and sinister details that invite exploration Not sure if children will pick this up on their own its artwork is a little too dense, even abstruse but it is sure to reward those who take the chance.


    16. Dark humor and genuine creepiness make this retelling a must read for all troll hunters Though, I probably wouldn t read this to kids who are easily scared because some of the drawings the troll in its cave really are downright frightening.4 starsThis contemporary retelling is loosely based on the Norwegian fairytale The Troll With No Heart In His Body by Asbj rnsen and Moe.


    17. Quirky illustrations were fun to look at, story was written in a humorous way Overall it was okay, didn t love it, but don t have anything bad to say about it Just isn t anything new or daring or especially heartfelt.


    18. Oh, Norwegian folk tales You re even a little weirder than most of what America knows But this modern retelling is kinda cool and I like the art and I think it could have some fans 4th 6th




    19. 3 What an amazing book, and the art is fantastic I won t spoil where the troll keeps his heart, but it s wonderful anyway A new favorite description of where to put a thing.
