That Boy Emil!Lindgren, Astrid. That Boy Emil!.

Rabén & Sjögren, 2013.

Emil of Katthult Farm in Lönneberga is a cheerful, well-meaning boy but always up to mischief. He famously hoisted his little sister up the flagpole and got his head stuck in a soup tureen, for example. In his fiftieth birthday year, Lindgren's Swedish publishers commissioned an English translation of a condensed version of the three Emil books, with the original illustrations by the matchless Björn Berg.
