Newly illustrated by Lauren Child (creator of Charlie and Lola)

Written by Astrid Lindgren, Illustrated by Lauren Child

Translated by Tiina Nunnally

The text is appropriate for gifted third graders, and fourth and fifth grade students. This classic is as engaging as ever, but even more appealing because of the updated illustrations. Lauren Child is well recognized by today’s kids because of the popular Charlie and Lola. She has such fun and unique images that compliment the character and her comedic situations. This is authentic literature that grabs the imaginations of children in the genre of magical realism.
