Norwegians, Princesses and princely!

Princess Martha Louise of Norway collaborated with illustrator Svein Nyhus in their children's book, "Why Kings and Queens Don't Wear Crowns." An afternoon with a princess did not happen at the U of MN Elmer Andersen Library because she was sick. Svein carried on like a prince.

"Going for the Gold" If you can't have a crown, well, gold is up to $600 an ounce, that's Troy weight, 27 grams. The first time I saw someone wearing this I thought it was the real Olympic medal. I should have known, the real medals look like CD's on a ribbon. This one if the finest chocolate from Torino, Grandiuta. My "football" soccer jersey is the retro one of Alessandro del Piero, numero dieci, #10. Now he is #7, sete di oro, if you play scopa with Napoletana cards.

The brother of Norway's heartthrob is the quietest, most industrious worker & person. He is so sweet.

Look at those blue eyes. His illustrations make each page a wonderful work of art. Welcome to Minnesota, Svein Nyhus!
