Nils Holgersson's Wonderful Journey Through Sweden Volume 2, Paperback / softback Book

Nils Holgersson's Wonderful Journey Through Sweden Volume 2 Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Bea Bonafini

Description

Nils Holgersson's Wonderful Journey through Sweden (1906-07) is truly unique.

Starting life as a commissioned school reader designed to present the geography of Sweden to nine-year-olds, it quickly won the international fame and popularity it still enjoys over a century later.

The story of the naughty boy who climbs on the gander's back and is then carried the length of the country, learning both geography and good behaviour as he goes, has captivated adults and children alike, as well as inspiring film-makers and illustrators.

The elegance of the present translation - the first full translation into English - is beautifully complemented by the illustrations specially created for the volume.
