Rasmus and the Vagabond was written by Astrid Lindgren. That author's name may sound familiar to you because it is the same author who wrote Pippi Longstocking that I am sure you all know about.
About the book:
After running away from an orphanage, nine-year-old Rasmus finds the world a cold and unfriendly place until he befriends an extraordinary tramp called Paradise Oscar. Together they meet more adventure than they ever imagined, solve a mystery, and catch the culprits. Rasmus dreams of finding a family and a home someday. But when he does, will he be able to part with his new friend and life on the road?
We used this book as a read aloud during our school time. I've been trying to read through a chapter each day, but the kids have enjoyed hearing Rasmus' story, they always want more. My children loved Pippi Longstocking, so I knew when we recieved this book to read, they would also love this story.This book is very easy to read and is full of adventure!
About the author:
Astrid Lindgren, the creator of Pippi Longstocking, Emil, and dozens of other world-famous characters, has thrilled three generations of children with her storytelling. She is the only children’s author with a literary prize, a theme park, a museum, a satellite, and a minor planet named in her honor. (After this last honor, she suggested changing her name to “Asteroid Lindgren.”) A jury appointed by Swedish Radio’s Culture Department to elect the “Author of the Millennium” voted Astrid Lindgren second after William Shakespeare. She was awarded the Hans Christian Andersen Medal and heaps of other awards and honors.
