Astrid Anna Emilia Lindgren, née Ericsson, was a Swedish children's book author and screenwriter, whose many titles were translated into 85 languages and published in more than 100 countries. She has sold roughly 145 million copies worldwide. Today, she is most remembered for writing the Pippi Longstocking books, as well as Karlsson-on-the-Roof book series.
I read this book as a child and wanted to re-read it (like all the other books from Lindgren) when I found it
at a book discount festival I put it in my bag. I liked the book a lot again. There is so much adventure in the book which I love. The quarrel between both families is great too. Both Ronia's and Birk's father used to play together as children and it is fun that their children pick it up now too even though the fathers are arch enemies by now. The mythical creatures in the book are great too though some are pretty scary and others are very cute. I really liked the drawings in the book too. The pencil style fits well with the story.
