Kerstin and I


Chapter book
Astrid Lindgren
Rabén & Sjögren

Kerstin and I was Astrid Lindgren's second published book, it was published right before Pippi Longstocking, her big break-through. The book is about a couple of teenage twins, Kerstin and Barbro, who by a whim of fate (or more correctly, a whim of their father) have managed to end up in a small manor in the country. How the dilapidated property gets to be restored despite a lack of funds, what the twins’ part in its restoration is and how each of them gets a gentleman admirer, is what this happy and fun-filled book is all about.
