THIS book, which is the latest work of Sweden's greatest fiction writer, was published in Stockholm, December, 1906. It became immediately the most popular book of the year in Scandinavia. Everything comes to you through the adventures, or through the concrete images of imagination's all-compelling form. No one who has retained a particle of his child mind can escape the genuine witchery of the poesy in 'Nils. Look at Nils Holgersson Thumbietot!" Instantly the geese and the chickens turned and stared at the boy; and then they set up a fearful cackling, "Cock-el-i-coo," crowed the rooster, "good enough for him! Cock-el-i-coo, he has pulled my comb.

Translated from swedish by. Velma swanston howard. E-book production: grammofonbolaget. Some of the purely geographical matter in the Swedish original of the "Further Adventures of Nils" has been eliminated from the English version. The author has rendered valuable assistance in cutting certain chapters and abridging others. Also, with the author's approval, cuts have been made where the descriptive matter was merely of local interest. But the story itself is intact.

The Wonderful Journey of Nils is so well known in Swedish culture that a picture of Nils Holgersson, on the back of a goose flying over the plains of Scania, is printed on the reverse side of the Swedish 20 krona banknote. The background for publication was a commission from the National Teachers Association in 1902 to write a geography reader for the public schools. Lagerl""f devoted three years to Nature study and to familiarizing herself with animal and bird life. She sought out hitherto unpublished folklore and legends of the different provinces that she ingeniously woven into her story.
