Emil doesn’t mean any harm really – he just happens to eat fermented cherries and gets drunk together with the rooster and the pig. And afterward, when he’s about to repent and become a Good Templar, he accidentally sets fire to the vicar’s wife with his magnifying glass … but Emil is a nice boy, deep down, and when he is sitting there in the woodshed having carved his one-hundred-and-thirtieth little wooden figure, he prays earnestly: “Dear God, please make me stop doing mischief. Kind regards, Emil Svensson, Katthult, Lönneberga.”

Brilliantly funny stories ideal for fans of Horrid Henry and Pippi Longstocking.

Age 6+

"I adored Astrid Lindgren as a child and it was wonderful to discover the hilarious and original adventures of Emil, a little boy who gets his head stuck in soup tureens and hoists his sister up a flagpole. Irresistible."
