and Kai love to play on the gnarled old tree trunk outside their
cottage in the woods. Sometimes it becomes a horse, sometimes a
crocodile, and sometimes even a dragon.
One day a mischievous gnome brings the tree trunk to life, and the
children are whisked off to the Land of Long Ago on the back of the old
tree dragon. On their incredible journey, Kelly and Kai meet a princess,
rescue a knight, and trick the troll king. But will the old tree dragon
stay alive long enough to bring them home again?
The Land of Long Ago is delightful fairy tale from Elsa Beskow, with beautiful illustrations in her unique, classic style.
