‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’
(The Times, Magnus Linklater 29/06/05)
by Elsa Beskow
Age Range: Under_5
Sylvie and her father, the king, go for a walk in the woods. Sylvie’s dog Oskar runs off after a long-eared hare and she runs after him. At first the king believes that she is playing hide-and-seek but then he soon realizes that she really has disappeared. Meanwhile Sylvie is having a wonderful time with her new found friend.
Swedish author and illustrator Elsa Beskow was regarded at the Beatrix Potter of Scandinavia as she was considered the first picture book creator to convey the idea of childhood. Written in 1934, Princess Sylvie is a delightful story about exploring new places and making new friends.
