    Author:Astrid Lindgren
    Illustrator:Stina Wirsén
    Publisher:Astrid Lindgren Text

    "In 1978, Astrid Lindgren was awarded the German bookstore's peace prize. She shaped her acceptance speech into a flaming and urgent appeal against violence and tyranny. The speech is just as relevant today, with its straightforward description of the mechanisms of evil and our strong longing for peace.The 2018 edition of the speech includes a foreword by Marta Santos Pais, UN Secretary-General's Special Envoy on Violence Against Children. She leads the UN's international efforts to prevent and eliminate all violence against children. The afterword is written by Tomas Hammarberg, one of Sweden's most internationally known experts in human rights work. Children's rights are close to Thomas' heart and for many years he worked to make the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child a reality.Also included is Astrid Lindgren's poem Vore jag Gud, and the edition is richly illustrated by Stina Wirsén.“We all want peace. Is there then no possibility that we can change, before it is too late? That we can learn to distance ourselves from violence? Try to become a new kind of people, simply. But how would that be done, and if so where should we start? I think we have to start from scratch. With the children.”

      Astrid Lindgren in Norway

      The first to bring Astrid Lindgren's books abroad was the publisher Damm & Søn in Oslo, with their Norwegian edition of "Pippi Longstocking" already appearing in 1946. This marked the beginning of a long-standing relationship. Today, most of her books in Norway are published by Cappelen Damm, a publishing house formed through the merger of Cappelen and Damm. Astrid's book adaptations into films also became popular in Norway, as did her famous songs. One of Astrid Lindgren's favorite books was "Hunger" by the Norwegian author Knut Hamsun; she often mentioned it as one of her greatest reading experiences.
