Allrakäraste Syster






I have read most children's books out there. The ones with pictures in them that is...
One of my favorite children's book is this one by famous Swedish children's author Astrid Lindgren, called "Allrakäraste Syster". The wonderful illustrations are made by Hans Arnold.
It's a really sad story actually and if you have a sister it just makes you miss her even more ;(

  1. I just loved the illustrations.
    I'm gonna search for more about Hans Arnold, for I'm an child illustration enthusiastic.
    Thanks a lot for sharing so much pretty stuff. :)

    1. No I haven't read that... the title means something like "my dearest sister" or "my most beloved sister"

    1. Tack för att du lämnade en kommentar idag i alla fall! Har du sett filmen? Jag såg bara idag att det fanns en, det visste jag faktiskt inte... dock vet jag inte hur man skulle kunna få tag på den.

    2. jag har inte heller sett filmen men tror jag hört någon gång att den ska leva upp till ens förväntingar, så det låter ju lovande om man kan hitta den!
