This unique book features the trademark illustrations of the D'Aulaires, and arrives not as a book, but as a long, pull-out, folded paper encased in cloth-bound hardcover case. The front of the banner features colored pencil illustrations in bright hues, with simple text beneath highlighting animals by their broad environments-where it's hot, where there are seasons, and where it is always cold. The back features the same illustrations, but in black & white; the animals are labeled with their names and the noise they make. Read it page-by-page or pull it out to create a continuous panorama; more than fifty animals are lithographed in full color form.

A thousand years ago when the Vikings roamed the seas, led by their Norse gods, there lived a man in Norway called Erik the Red. He was able and strong but his temper was wild, and after a fight he was banned from Norway. So he sailed to Iceland. There he built a farm, found a wife, and lived in peace for a while. But then he began to quarrel and fight again, and it wasn't long before he had to flee from Iceland, too. Now Erik sailed off into the unknown sea toward the setting sun, and there behind a wall of ice he found a new land... Erik the Red had three sons. The one was called Torstein, the second Torvald, and the third was called Leif. And this is the story of Leif, Erik's son, who sailed with his father to Greenland, and who later sailed still farther west and found there the continent of America. Originally published in 1941, this oversized book is beautifully illustrated. Recommended for ages 4 to 11.
