I love this choice! I got a kindle copy for myself. How can I not read Selma Lagerlof, the first woman Nobelist in Literature, and Swedish to boot! This will definitely make an appearance in my plans for Nobel TBRs in week 3 post. I'm so glad that you and Guiltless Reader have been talking about this delightful children's book. Scandinavian authors have really excelled at children's literature, with Hans Christian Andersen, Selma Lagerlof, and Tove Jansson. And like most truly great examples of children's literature, adults do well to spend time with them too.

Seems like a fun challenge and a great way to get kids interested in reading quality books, too. Our blogging community would be blessed if you shared this at the Literacy Musing Mondays Linkup. #LMMLinkup http://www.foreverjoyful.net/?p=1007
