" I loved this book so much as a kid. And that's the first book I've tried to read in Hungarian, as a 6 year old (Romanian being my native language, and Hungarian my mother-tongue). " said.

" *Read in German*Loved it. How come the Swedes write such great books? " said.

" It's very well known in Sweden, but somehow I've never read it! " said.

" A good book.good way to learn about Sweden.Read the first part moving on to his return back home.Loved how gradually Nils changed from a careless unthinking boy to a helpful generous boy....the geese and the animals were fun too.On to the second part... " said.

" Imagine you have somehow shrunk to the size of an elf and have been carried away on the back of a goose, which begins a long and dangerous journey from which you hope to return.My fourth grade teacher read this aloud as we happily worked on quiet art projects which occupied our hands and produced life-long keepsakes while at the same time being absorbed by the memorable adventures of a Norse-land boy. " said.

"It's about a boy whose mammy and daddy are gone away for a day. The boy finds a leprechaun while he is eating in the garden. The leprechaun makes him as small as a bird. Then the boy finds a goose, and the goose says that he has lost the other geese. The boy says he will fly along on the goose's back and help it find the others. They have a lot of adventures together. They even find a bear's cave. The boy falls in. The goose throws a rope in to rescue him, and the boy climbs up on the rope. Another time they fall through the ice, and they have lots more adventures in Sweden. " said.

"Part fairy tale, part an imaginative wander around Sweden and its natural history. Initially written for school children it paid great attention to the ecology of different areas of that country. Yet you wouldn't know it. Woven around the adventures of a young boy who was turned elf-size for not keeping a promise, and who goes on to follow a flock of geese in their travels. It was written in 1909 and the author was the first woman to win the Nobel Prize for Literature. Very cleverly written. Age recommend? 6 to adult." said.
