About the Rasmus and the Vagabond:
After running away from an orphanage, nine-year-old Rasmus finds the world a cold and unfriendly place until he befriends an extraordinary tramp called Paradise Oscar. Together they meet more adventure than they ever imagined, solve a mystery, and catch the culprits. Rasmus dreams of finding a family and a home someday, but when he does, will he be able to part with his new friend and life on the road?
She was an incredible character immortalized in an 11 book set written between 1944 and 2000 by the writer Astrid Lindgren. Rasmus and the Vagabond was a book written in 1956 from her 1955 screenplay (it was twice made into a Swedish move, the second time in 1981)
This prolific author has created another incredible children’s book that already is being read by grandchildren of the original readers and is likely to be read for many more generations to come. This book is so enjoyable not only because of how great she tells the story, but because she takes us back to a time when life was a whole lot simpler. She takes us on a journey and makes us imagine just how Rasmus was feeling throughout the story. Rasmus and the Vagabond is another great read by a great author.
About the author:
Astrid Lindgren, the creator of Pippi Longstocking, Emil, and dozens of other world-famous characters, has thrilled three generations of children with her storytelling. She is the only children’s author with a literary prize, a theme park, a museum, a satellite, and a minor planet named in her honor. (After this last honor, she suggested changing her name to “Asteroid Lindgren.”) A jury appointed by Swedish Radio’s Culture Department to elect the “Author of the Millennium” voted Astrid Lindgren second after William Shakespeare. She was awarded the Hans Christian Andersen Medal and heaps of other awards and honors.
