Emil’s Sticky Problems/Emils hyss nr 325
Katthult in Lönneberga was a pleasant place. Everyone thought so. “Of course there is misery here too,” said Lina, who was the maid in Katthult. All the snow in the winter and all the flies in the summer, and Emil, who would make mischief whatever season. She was right about that, of course. But Emil’s latest atrocity was actually the flies’ fault. Emil’s mother wanted to buy flycatchers, but Emil’s father thought it was too expensive. It fell into Emil’s hands to arrange about the fly catching, and soon Emil would have done his 325th mischief, thanks to all those flies!
Astrid Lindgren’s beloved stories about Emil are perfect for those who are just starting to read. The language is simple and clear, and Björn Berg’s fantastic illustrations add colour to the story.
