- This is the sequel to "The Adventures of Nils". It comes close to living up to the first book, but is somewhat more haphazardly organised. Nils continues travelling with the wild geese, sees points of interest in Sweden, meets the author of the book, and must solve a moral dilema.This is a good book for reading to children of a wide range of ages. My children are 10 and 7 and were both captivated by it, but I could easily see younger children enjoying it as well.
- The sequel to the Wonderful Adventures of Nils, this novel continues Nils journey through Sweden after a brief interlude concerning Greyskin the Elk. It is a continuation and completion of the first novel more than a sequel, so a must-read for anyone who enjoyed the first. This book has slightly more serious consequences than the first part, but is still suitable for young children. Readers will witness the quest of Osa the goosegirl and Little Mats to find there father, which has a bittersweet ending, as well as the final resolution of Tummetot's goal to become human again. This is a wonderful book to read aloud, breaking up nicely into chapters, and telling many different short stories. It is a story superbly told, blending geography, history, and folk lore, as well as making children aware of the responsibilities humans have towards their animal neighbors. A classic worth owning!
- great stories, our kids love her books.
