No Stinginess, Said Emil/Inget knussel, sa Emil i Lönneberga
On a snowy winter day, there was a party in Katthult in Lönneberga. It was a fun and somewhat unusual party, much thanks to the new teacher. She was young and cheerful and had all kinds of ideas, and she thought they should have a snowball fight while waiting for their food. They did indeed have a snowball fight, one which Emil’s father would not soon forget. And it got even worse later, when Emil kissed the church minister’s wife. No less than eight times, because he is not stingy, Emil! And he wouldn’t be Emil if it weren’t for his mischiefs.
Astrid Lindgren’s beloved stories about Emil i Lönneberga are perfect for those who have just started reading and Björn Berg’s fantastic illustrations add color to the story.
