On Seacrow Island, in the outer Stockholm archipelago, live the Grankvist Family. The family consists of parents Nisse and Marta, their eldest children Teddy and Freddy, and then there’s Tjorven, the youngest. Tjorven’s best friend is her trusted companion Bosun the St. Bernard who dutifully follows her everywhere she goes. When summer arrives, the city dwelling Melkerson family move to the island and Tjorven makes a new friend in their son Pelle, a boy her own age. With him he brings his older brothers Niklas and Johan, their widower dad Melker, and of course Malin, the oldest of the siblings who becomes somewhat of a mother to the rest of the children.
Summers on Scarecrow Island are spent catching poachers, treasure hunting, answering distress calls from out at sea, seal-rescuing, and many more exiting adventures, some scarier than others.
Penned by beloved author Astrid Lindgren, Seacrow Island was originally written as a television show for Swedish public television which aired in the 1960s
