Astrid Lindgren by Maria Isabel Sanchez Vegara

I love this book!  The illustrations are so vibrant and appealing.  The story of Astrid is that of a girl who was thrilled to learn to read and enter fictional worlds.  She loved being a child and was not eager to grow up.  But, grow up she did and as a bit of a rebel.  Readers will learn that Astrid’s most famous character, Pippi Longstocking, got her name from the author’s daughter,  Karin.  Astrid eventually wrote these stories down and…the rest is history.

This is another excellent entry in a series that offers children the opportunity to learn about little people who grew up to be people who did big things.  As always, there is a timeline  biography at the end of the book with photos of the author.

Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title in exchange for an honest review.
