D'Aulaires' Trolls (1972) was a finalist for the annual National Book Award, Children's Literature [9] and a New York Times Book Review "outstanding book" for 1972. This newly updated edition includes a new cover and an afterword featuring never-before-published drawings from the sketchbook of Ingri and Edgar D’Aulaire - plus an essay about their life and work and photos from the family archive. derinlemesine bir inceleme beklemeyin dediğim gibi sadeleştirilmiş bir baskı bu ama daha önce hiç okumadıysanız ve ilginizi çekiyorsa keyif alacağınızı düşünüyorum.
