More Astrid Lindgren!

After reading I Don’t Want To Go To Bed I decided to see if I had any others on my shelves. I did, and it was a gem!

Lotta’s Bike is about a quaint family with three kids. Older kids can ride bikes and little Lotta wants to do badly! Being a very smart girl, she comes up with a plan to steal the neighbor lady’s bike from her shed. Lotta managed to get the adult sized bike up the hill and then mounts it for a wild ride down. Despite taking the bike, she gets extra lucky when Daddy comes home with a Lotta-sized bike. Of course if you take your hands off of the handlebars too soon you might crash.

I just adore the illustrations by Ilon Wickland! You can just see the sassy attitude!

That is what backyards should look like! If you get a chance to look at a book by Lindgren or with Wickland’s illustrations, enjoy them!
