Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.  

This Penguin Classic is performed by Mathew Baynton, known for his roles in Vanity Fair, Horrible Histories, Gavin and Stacey and Ghosts.   

Nils Holgersson is a naughty boy who tortures animals and never listens to his parents - until one day he wakes up as an elf. Deeply puzzled by his new status, he climbs on a gander's back and flies away with him, joining a flock of wild geese. As he is carried around Sweden, Nils learns everything about birds, animals, his country and good behaviour. Incredibly charming and poignant, The Wonderful Adventure of Nils Holgersson, is a timeless classic loved by generations of children around the world.

What the critics say

"The book is grand, beautiful, exciting and poignant ... It is full of poetical phrasing...yet allows for the naughty spirit of childhood to remain true." (Guardian)
