Selma Lagerlöf’s story of Nils, the mischievous young boy shrunk to the size of a thumb when he gets on the wrong side of an elf, is a classic in Sweden and this much shortened version of his epic adventures will excite many young readers in this country. Nils and his animal friends are wonderful characters, no young reader will be able to resist Akka from Kebnekaise, the wild geese leader. Not only does the book contain 22 different episodes, perfect bedtime reading, but each is accompanied by striking, atmospheric illustrations and exquisite die-cut pages. There’s even a map at the very back so that readers can follow Nils’s journey around Sweden. An unusual and unusually beautiful book. ~ Andrea Reece ***For many years a picture of Nils Holgersson on the back of a goose in flight appeared on the reverse side of the Swedish 20 krona banknote (only recently was he replaced by Pippi Longstocking!)
