DESCRIPTION 

In this newly illustrated edition of the classic Swedish folk tale, mischievous Nils is shrunk to a tiny size by a gnome and carried across Sweden by a flock of 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. The Wonderful Adventures of Nils is truly an engaging, exciting and beautiful story about acceptance, courage and resilience. The engaging chapters are short enough to maintain the attention of a five or six year old during a read aloud for story time, but the story is long enough to keep your nine or ten year old reading through the night.
