Kalevala by Don Rosa

Do you know Kalevala, the national epic of Finland? Its stories originate from old Finnish and Karelian mythology and oral folklore. In the 19th century Elias Lönnrot wrote them all down in one book called Kalevala. Due to its old language it is hard to read though.

But did you know that its Don Rosa, one of the most popular comic book illustrators for Disney created his own version of the Kalevala starring Donald Duck and Scrooge McDuck? Not only for children this book is a perfect start to enter the world of Kalevala. “The Quest of Kalevala” was printed in Finnish, English and many other languages and can be found from every bigger well-sorted book store.
