The Wonderful Adventures of Nils

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.

About the Author

Selma Ottilia Lovisa Lagerlöf (1858-1940) was born in Mårbacka, in the province of Värmland in southern Sweden. Lagerlöf’s work is deeply rooted in Nordic legends and history. She rejected the dominating realistic movement and wrote her novels in a romantic and imaginative style about the peasant life and landscape of Northern Sweden. She wrote several books for children, the most popular of which is The Wonderful Adventures of Nils. In 1909, she became the first woman writer to win the Nobel Prize for Literature, and, in 1914, she was appointed a member of the Swedish Academy.
