Rasmus and the Vagabond {Giveaway}

Did you read Pippi Longstocking when you were younger? I totally did! I remember the girls making their hair do the funky Pippi braids for dress up days and such… Does anyone still do that?

Astrid LindgrenAstrid Lindgren is the creator of Pippi Longstocking as well as dozens of other world-famous characters and 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.”)

Rasmus and the VagabondThe kids and I recently read Rasmus and the Vagabond written by Astrid. Originally published in 1956, it was released again in 2015. It was a very quick read, being a children’s book, but it has a good storyline.

Rasmus and the Vagabond insideAfter 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 imagine, 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 all enjoyed this book! We read it during our homeschool day and it was nice to see the kids wanting to know what happened the following day when we read again. We read a lot of books every month and I am glad this was one of them!
