In this large format, colour, newly illustrated edition of the classic Swedish folk tale, Nils is shrunk to a tiny size by a dwarf, and is carried off across Sweden by a flock of wild 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. This story is so well known in Sweden that a picture of Nils riding on the geese appears on Swedish banknotes ! For ages 5-9 years
