is the drawing used for the cover of this edition. Funny adventures. It's interesting to see different reactions to Emil's escapades, and heartwarming to know that his parents, in their innocence, forgive him every time. Little sister Ida is adorable. I love the pictures, as they're so expressive & lively despite being 'simple' line drawings." ( )

Love this book. It is very recognizable for children: a 5-year old boy who constantly gets into trouble, although he really tries to do his very best to stay out of them.
Everything just always seems to go wrong, without any bad intentions from his side. Higly recommended! ( )

The original Swedish title, Emil i Lönneberga (Emil of Lönneberga) makes more sense. The soup tureen episode is only one chapter of the book. Some of things Emil did reminded me of my littlest sister. :) ( )

I actually read this in Swedish! I doubt I could manage it all now, but still. Go me! Naughty little Emil was heaps of fun as well :) ( )
