Från snickerboa till Villa Villekulla (Swedish)

    Från snickerboa till Villa Villekulla (Swedish)

    Author:Johan Erséus, Petter Karlsson

    A book about Astrid Lindgren's films. Is it true that Pippi's horse Lilla Gubben was sedated during the filming? That the monster Katla after her career in the Lionheart Brothers was locked up in Långholmen's old prison? And that Pig's Knuckle ended its days on a West Swedish Christmas table?Authors Petter Karlsson and Johan Erséus have interviewed film people, rummaged through archives, looked for old filming locations, searched classic outhouses, unearthed forgotten notes from Astrid's own pen and asked questions about the most beloved fairytale characters of our time.It became a heartbreaking story about how these small and large personalities were born. How to find actors, robber barons, farmhouses, horses and seals. And how it went about creating hideous monsters, inquisitive butt goblins, flying fatties and classic film songs.

    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.
