Willa and the Wind is retold from an old Norwegian folktale. The conversational tone and the brightly colored illustrations make the reader feel as if he or she is part of the story...or at the very least being present at a captivating live re-telling of the story. Willa and her sister appreciate the cool winds that bring them sustenance on the country farm. When the wind playfully steals Willa's cornmeal, she is hopping mad...mad enough to confront Old Windy. He presents her with magical, odd presents that are quick to be stolen from her. But, with persistence, courage and quick-thinking skills, Willa uses the gifts to her best advantage and finds a way to live a comforting life, filled with every day simple pleasures.
