Read and join the virtual book discussion of April's book, The Wonderful Adventures of NilsThe Wonderful Adventures of Nils by Selma Lagerlöf

"Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1909 -- the first woman to be so honored -- Swedish novelist Selma Lagerlöf (1858-1940) was a gifted storyteller whose writings were often tinged with the supernatural and rooted in the sagas and legends of her homeland. She secured her reputation as a children's-book author with The Wonderful Adventures of Nils, long considered a masterpiece of children's literature. Written at the request of Swedish school authorities and first published in 1906, it is the enchanting and remarkably original tale of Nils Holgersson, a mischievous boy of 14 who is changed by an elf into a tiny being able to understand the speech of birds and animals." -from Bookshop.org
