The Wonderful Adventures of Nils by Selma Lagerlof, Selma Lagerloef


The Wonderful Adventures of Nils by Selma Lagerlof, Selma Lagerloef

In this newly illustrated edition of the classic Swedish folk tale, Nils is shrunk to a tiny size by a dwarf, and carried across Sweden by a flock of wild geese to their summer home in the far North. Through many perils and exciting adventures, Nils wins the respect and love of the geese and finally returns home.


'Nil's travels give readers the opportunity to learn about Swedish towns, their inhabitants and traditions. This is one of Sweden's best-loved children's books.'
