This is the first book about Karlsson on the Roof, perhaps Astrid Lindgren’s most controversial creation besides Pippi Longstocking.

Up on the roof of an altogether normal house on an altogether normal street in Stockholm, lives a Mister, whose name is Karlsson. He is a handsome, exceedingly wise, all-round hero in the prime of his life, who lives in a tiny little cottage hidden behind the big chimney. Imagine Smidge's delight when, one day, a little man with a propeller on his back appears hovering at the window! It's Karlson … And so this hilarious story starts.

Karlsson is acting like a spoilt badly behaved child. All of a sudden the children in the family, who are the only one that can see him, have to behave like adults and try to teach Karlsson some manners. Soon Smidge and Karlson are sharing all sorts of adventures, from tackling thieves and playing tricks to looping the loop and running across the rooftops. Fun and chaos burst from these charming, classic stories

Suitable for: Boys and girls who are fans of Astrid Lindgren's Pippi Longstocking, Lotta, and Emil books, of the 'Horrid Henry' and 'Judy Moody' series.

Age 5+

"A lovely chapter book to read or to be read too. Good fun for everyone"
