I remember The brothers Lionhart, Mio my son is unknown to me.
Oh she does!! So great, thanks so very much Ank!!
It's so very funny that both of you know the story!! Saltkrokan is a great place too, but do you then know "Mio, my son" and "The brothers Lionheart"? Thanks so very much Dagmar!!
When I looked at the photo the first though that entered my mind was that this looked just like the village of The Children of Bullerbü. I loved this series when I was young, and I always wanted to live in such an idyllic world like Inga, Lasse, Britta, Ole, Bosse and the little Kerstin. The same as the series Holidays on Saltkrokan. :))
Thanks Hanne for some very dear memories. :))
Lovely. Little Lisa tells her story in Dutch too.
It is Sandy! Thanks so very much!!
Sounds like fun hanne.
Thanks, Hanne. I'll be checking there in a bit.
Yes, I sent a mail for you Ardy, but if anybody else should be interested they are called "The Children of Noisy Village" and there are four of them.
Oh you would love them, but I can't just find them translated. When Bent returns from town I'll make him investigate, he is much better than I am!! Thanks so very much Ardy!!
Sounds like good reading to me. Were they translated into English? I think they might be similar to our Laura Ingalls Wilder "little House" books which would be about the same time period Thanks, Hanne, for sharing.
Here in Stensjoe the houses are from the same period as those from Kopparberg. There are 3 farms here lying rather close together, and that's why this place was used for making a movie on a series of books by the famous Swedish author Astrid Lindgren. They are know as "All we children in Bulderby", and indeed there were just 6 and ½ children, the last one was too small to be able to play with the bigger ones. They have a wonderful community and we follow their playing - with old toys, homemade mostly, besides we see how all that was needed mostly was made at home, even furniture and how children and grown ups work together. The stories are from the beginning of 1900 and most children LOVE them.
