Reviews

A masterpiece... It showed me that a book could be an adventure -- Gary Shteyngart
A childhood favorite -- Philip Gourevitch
Among women novelists of great talent or genius, none, in my opinion, is to be placed higher than Selma Lagerloef -- Marguerite Yourcenar
Every book of this great storyteller keeps on bringing us astonishing examples of her art... No one in Europe can tell tales so unforgettably -- Hermann Hesse
I am a strange Japanese who spent his infancy and boyhood under the overwhelming influence of Nils Holgersson. So great was Nils' influence on me that there was a time I could name Sweden's beautiful locales better than those of my own country... The destination of the soul: this is what I, led on by Nils Holgersson, came to seek in the literature of Western Europe -- Kenzaburo Oe
Grand, beautiful, exciting and poignant... This wise, rich text is a welcome addition to Penguin's Classics series -- Philip Womack * Guardian *
