    Go down to Strandvägkajen in Stockholm on a summer morning and see if there is a small white archipelago boat named Sea Crow I. If there is, just get on board. At ten o'clock on the dot she depart because now she is going out on her usual journey, the one that ends at the islands at the far end of the ocean strip. There lies Seacrow Island, the island that has given her her name. And there came one day in June a father and his four children, it was the Melkerson family...

    Astrid Lindgren originally wrote Seacrow Island as a TV script for Sveriges Television. The book is based on the incredibly popular TV series, which also spawned four subsequent films. Astrid drew inspiration for the archipelago environments mainly from her summer residence in Furusund.

      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.
