Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nils Holgersson had spent his childhood being unkind to the birds and animals around him. His misbehavior caught up with him one day when an elf transformed him into an elf-sized boy. An extraordinary fight for survival begins, and Nils learns about respect and humility. Originally published in 1906, the author, Selma Lagerlof, was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1909. Contains 100 beautiful illustrations by Hans Baumhauer.

Synopsis:

Selfish and lazy, fourteen-year-old Nils learns kindness and wisdom after he is bewitched into an elf-sized boy and carried off by a barnyard goose to join the migration of wild geese across Sweden to Lapland.

Synopsis:

Enchanting tale about a boy who can understand the speech of animals, imparting information about nature, geography, and native folklore.
