Princess Sylvie by Elsa BeskowPrincess Sylvie persuades her father, the king, to leave the palace gardens and walk in the woods. The king is unsure. What might be in the woods? Then Sylvie's dog Oskar runs off after a long-eared hare and Sylvie's adventures begin. This is a delightful story for young children about exploring new places and making new friends, and about the comforts of home.
. 'Fans of Elsa Beskow will be delighted to see this book available in English and I'm sure young children will enjoy having it read to them at bedtime where they too can take joy in the author's love of animals and nature.
. 'This lovely story for young children is all about new places and friends and coming home. This is sure to be a story you and yours children will read over and over again.
'Fans of the author will be pleased to discover that this Swedish tale, originally published in 1934, has been translated into English ... Soft, gentle watercolors keep the mood light and airy and complement the fairy-tale quality of the text.'
'Princess Sylvie is a reprint of a treasured child's picture book from a series by the author/illustrator now over a century old ... a beloved classic that will be reintroduced to countless new generations of young readers to come.'
