    Astrids bilder (Swedish)

    Author:Astrid Lindgren, Jacob Forsell, Johan Erséus, Margareta Strömstedt
    Publisher:Max Ström

    The true story of Astrid Lindgren is as fantastic as the stories she wrote herself. The girl from the country leaves her childhood playground, gets pregnant by a man she doesn't want to know about, runs away from her hometown and has to leave her son behind. She starves in the big city, gets married, tells fairy tales, starts writing and becomes the most loved writer in the country. Her books are read all over the world, she is showered with gold coins and prizes, overthrows a government and influences laws, but remains at heart and soul a peasant girl from Småland. This is the story of Astrid Lindgren's life - in pictures.

    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.
