This is one of my favorite childhood books! My mum used to read it to me when I was little and I always wanted to read it myself but my mum would never let me because our copy of it is really old. So I was extremly excited when my mum finally let me.

I don't remember a lot about the plot now because I haven't read it in ages but I always loved it because it was so sweet and Mio was just a really kind character and the friendship was so nice.

Also I liked the fact that this was about father and son. ( )

En tidlös berättelse som inte väjer för svåra känslor, som visar tilltro till barns förmåga och som inger hopp och tröst.

Not the best of Astrid Lindgren that I've read. Clearly one of the early books. The beginning of the magic is there but the characters are rather superficial and the pace of the storytelling is slow. the best part starts in the middle of the book when Mio has to take action.
I did like the basic sentiments about friendship and love in this book. ( )

This is a book about fairly tales. Mio and his father take timeless adventures and travels. The adventures and travels are good and sometimes bad and filled with good and evil. The overall story is great and will want you ready to take a trip!

This is my favorite of Astrid Lindgren's books (closely followed by Emil and Ronja) and listening to Astrid herself telling the tale brings me back to childhood and the comforts of having "Everyone's Grandma" telling you a "saga." It has just the right mix of scary and sweet, of tears and laughter. I just love it! And, no, I'll never watch a film made from this book, no matter how great it's supposed to be - the pictures in my head from childhood are too vivid and important to me. Nostalgia at its best!! :) Amazing, isn't it, that she started out writing chick-lit! ( )
