Inga-Lill Ottosson

Inga-Lill Ottosson was born 1942. She has been a Swedish teacher for 6-8 years old children. She now has retired after 45 years. During the years in school she often tolled stories for the kids. Both old folk stories and tales she made up her self. After retirement she has written down some of the self-made stories. She has also made the selections we have made among the old folk stories and tales that we have published here on this site with free stories for on-line reading. 

Brothers Grimm

The Brothers Grimm (die Brüder Grimm or die Gebrüder Grimm), Jacob (1785–1863) and Wilhelm Grimm(1786–1859), were German academics, linguists, cultural researchers, lexicographers and authors who together specialized in collecting and publishing folklore during the 19th century.

Hans Christian Andersen

Hans Christian Andersen ( Danish; often referred to in Scandinavia as H. C. Andersen; 2 April 1805 – 4 August 1875) was a Danish author. Although a prolific writer of plays, travelogues, novels, and poems, Andersen is best remembered for his fairy tales. Andersen's popularity is not limited to children; his stories, called eventyr in Danish or "fairy-tales" in English, express themes that transcend age and nationality.
