Northern Fairy Tales

<< Back to Main Northern Family Page

Welcome to Northern Fairy Tales, a series of original and adapted tales by Jim Johnston. Here we are striving to bring you fairy tales that are distinctly Northern and that convey Northern ideals. At the end of most tales that have been adapted you will find a link to the original tale that the adaptation was taken from. We hope you and your children find them useful and enjoyable. If you would like to contact Jim and let him know what you think or give us your comments or suggestions you can do so at and we will forward your message to Jim. We look forward to hearing from you.
