Elsa Beskow (1874-1953) is the most popular children's author--illustrator in Sweden. Often described as Sweden's Beatrix Potter, Elsa Beskow's picture books have been known and loved for over a century. Her charming stories of children and magical folk, accompanied by her signature illustrations, are known and cherished the world over.
'What a wonderful collection of books, all in mini sizes but still beautifully designed and detailed... The stories are wonderful evocations of a more innocent childhood, but it is the illustrations that give it the wow factor. I can imagine children spending a great deal of time simply admiring the pictures. The are from another time and place, in a good way.' -- EYE (Early Years Educator)
