Where to buy books in other languages

I work at a preschool and we recently had a "foreign language" themed week so I had the opportunity to poke around in the children's foreign language section at the library to find some to bring in to school, and I found a book in Norwegian that I'd like to buy a copy of (I live in the U.S.). The problem is, I don't know where I could buy it. I can find references to the book by Googling, but none of them seem to lead to any Amazon-like sites where it's for sale.

The book I'm looking for is "Lange herr Streng og strenge herr lang: og noen vers til som har gått seg vill" by Bjørn Rønningen, illustrated by Vivian Zahl Olsen. The publisher is N. W. Damm & Søn.

I don't speak any Norwegian, but the book still made me laugh out loud...and I want to buy it as a present for someone I know who studies Norwegian.

Any ideas?
