Martina abita a Poggio di Giugno con la mamma, il papà, la sorellina Lisa nella casa rossa in riva al fiume. Vivace e piena di idee, un po' maldestra, Martina ha tutte le caratteristiche dei bambini cresciuti in un ambiente rurale, ma ha anche un grande senso dell'ingiustizia e della lealtà, è animata cioè da sentimenti radicati nella piccola borghesia protestante, in cui è cresciuta. Età di lettura: da 8 anni.

This is now the third classic Swedish children's book that I've read in German translation, and once again I find, to my considerable surprise, that Swedish stories can survive the transition to this new language intact. I read it, and I'm amazed by the translator's skill, but even more by the fact
Please note that for simplicity's sake, I will be using the main character's American name (Meg) throughout, although I personally know her as Madita (from the German translations) and in the Swedish original, she is called Madicken (in the British translations, Madicken is known as Mardie); these a Leggi tutto
We've read it with my daughther following Manny's advice. I never saw such response from my child. She was jumping around her room, laughing out loud, she wanted to discuss every plotline, because they all affected something inside of her. Most intersting thing is that I never saw such reaction on an Leggi tutto
This book reminded me why A. Lindgren was my favorite author when I was a kid. Her books just radiate such warmness.. And humor is amazing. There were some serious themes in this book also: poverty, alcoholism, insanity. Madita goes into my favorites shelf like most of other Lindgren's books.
This is definitely my favourite Astrid Lindgren book. It always reminds me of what my sister and I were like as kids.
Sometimes you shouldn’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good. The great Manny Rayner extols this book, published in Swedish in 1960 as Madicken , in both the original Swedish and its German translation. The English translation is supposed to be sub-par; however, I really enjoyed the adventures of Leggi tutto

I mentioned in my review of Pippi Longstocking that there was a summer that my cousin and I read through all of the Astrid Lindgren books (or at least the ones that were shelved at the local library.) I could always remember the events in this one - but couldn't place which book it was. I spent the e Leggi tutto
I liked it, but it bothered me that her mother was always so mean to that neighbour boy. I'm sure he just wanted to have fun and play with her. Just because he was poor didn't mean she had to be so rude. He just liked playing with her and doing fun things. No need to be so stuck up. Her daughter alw Leggi tutto
Ensimmäinen kirja jonka luin. Olin tällöin viisivuotias. Pidin sitä lapsuuden läpi lempikirjanani. Nyt aikuisena päätin lukea uudestaan ja luulin ajan kullanneen muistot. Ehei, tämä on oikeasti hyvä kirja. Vähän ehdin saada kiinni siitä fiiliksestä mikä minulla oli 27 vuotta sitten tätä lukiessani. Leggi tutto
