The children had some elaborate game involving rocket ships and land rovers. This giant log served as some sort of aircraft. But after taking a closer look, we realized that the log resembles some sort of giant crocodile or dragon. A friend in Sweden said that this photo reminds her of the book The Land of Long Ago by Swedish author and illustrator Elsa Beskow. I am familiar with her beautiful illustrations and we do possess three of her gorgeous books: Peter in Blueberry Land, Children of the Forest and The Sun Egg. If you aren't already familiar with her books, I do recommend looking them up. They're a feast for the imagination.
