Didn't write a review for the previous book, because I felt like I had to finish this one to actually get the whole thing. I liked this book a lot. Reminded me of Gulliver's Travels and the Borrowers...in a good way with a little bit of Thumbelina. The main reason I liked these books were the fact they are about Sweden's landscape and wildlife. If you are at all interested in Sweden I recommend these books.

Part 2 of Thumbietot's adventures around Sweden, and just as delightful as Part 1. I wish there were an American equivalent of Selma Lagerlof, writing textbooks about American geography and folklore, packaged as a children's novel.

Previously read to Molly. Finished Nils Book 1 with Shannon tonight and cracked the cover on Book 2!

Molly and I like "Further Adventures" even better than Book 1. Hoping the same is true this time around with Shannon!

Very similar in episodic structure to the first book, The Wonderful Adventures of Nils. The stories in Further Adventures, however, are often slightly darker and more morally ambiguous than in the first book.

This was a fun book and I learned a lot about Sweden and it's people. It is a children's book but well worth reading as an adult.
