Astrid Lindgren

The Complete Works of Astrid Lindgren [project]

Astrid Lindgren

As a child, I grew up watching the Swedish movie versions of her stories on Sunday morning. I also read some of her books: Pippi Longstocking, Ronia the Robbers Daughter, The Children of Noisy Village, The Brothers Lionheart.. They all became instant favourites. Now, having visited Sweden, my respect for her has grown into full-blown nostalgic love and I feel an urge to read all of her works.

I am unable to find a comprehensive list of all her Swedish works, accompanied by translations to English or Dutch. The list below is what I have been able to piece together thus far (I have skipped over picture books, for now). If possible, the English title is listed. If you know of any other titles (whether Swedish, Dutch, or English) then please let me know by leaving a comment of emailing me!
