This is a beautiful story of a little family of forest people living under a tree. The four children wear red and white bonnets like toadstools, and this is an account of their days among the trees - playing with squirrels, riding on a bat, meeting a toad by the pool. There are dangers - father has to don his pine-cone armour to do battle with a viper, and when the boys poke an ants' nest, they get stung. Not to mention the troll...
Then there is picking fruit and mushrooms for the winter. First Published in Sweden 1910.
