In 1895, Wahlenberg wrote her first art fairy tale collection Bengt's tales about kings, elves, trolls and princesses. She wrote over 200 fairy tales, dedicating some of them to her sons. In her fairy tales, Wahlenberg combined traditional fairy tale enchantment and magic with everyday problems and events. In 1899, she became the first to translate A Thousand and One Nights into Swedish.
