A bit late in the discussion perhaps... but I'm adding another Scandinavian book, maybe obscure..

In the Time of Bells by Maria Gripe (there might actually exist a real translation of that title, but that is as close as I can make it on my own without professional help).

I also remember loving the book World's End Was Home by Nan Chauncy. Most of the book is set in Tasmania, which felt wonderfully exotic to me. There is also a pet wombat..
