The Wonderful Adventures of Nils

Selma Lagerlöf

Book Overview: 

The Wonderful Adventures of Nils is a famous work of fiction by Selma Lagerlöf, first woman to be awarded the Nobel Prize in literature. The background for publication was a commission from the National Teachers Association to write a geography reader for the public schools. “She devoted three years to Nature study and to familiarizing herself with animal and bird life. She has sought out hitherto unpublished folklore and legends of the different provinces. These she has ingeniously woven into her story.”

"Thank you, Lady Brown Owl. I had a very comfortable time," said the gray owl. "Has anything out of the ordinary happened here at home during my absence?"

Que grande e animada viagem. Pela suécia, pelas memórias do povo, pelas lendas, pelo mundo animal, pela natureza, por um mundo mágico.
