Nils-Johan Jørgensenis a master teller of folk tales for children which draw on myth and legend from cultures around the world. His first collection North of the North Wind included four stories based on Nordic fairy tales, set in curious dreamscapes. His second, East of the East Wind, incorporates oriental themes and lore to create beguiling modern-day fables. West of the West Wind continues the series in the same tradition, featuring three beautifully illustrated stories; The Library, Wolves and the Silence of the Sail. This time, our heroes face adversarial situations and malevolent foes which challenge every bit of their strength and courage. Dark and foreboding, these stories will appeal to older children's love of the bizarre and sinister.
Ambassador Nils-Johan Jørgensen was born and went to school in northern Norway. As a career diplomat he served in Brussels, Copenhagen, Harare, Tokyo, Bonn and Dar es Salaam. He received the St Olav's Order in 1997. He divides his time between Norway and Sarre, Kent.
