Lovely sweet stories about tomboy Mardie and the scrapes she gets into with her little sister Lisbet. I loved this book as a child, and it remains one of my favourite childrens books. And definitely my favourite Swedish book of all time!

I've no doubt this is better for children, better in the original, and better if one thinks of Meg as more like 7, instead of almost 10 - she's awfully immature and innocent. And the line drawings were intriguing, different - and Meg looks awfully small and young in them.

Compare it more to the Ramona Quimby books than to Pippi Longstocking, and read it if you can, but don't worry that you're missing out on something amazing if you can't find a copy.… (more)
