ENDED Book Giveaway: Rasmus and the Vagabond by Astrid Lindgren

February 9, 2015

Rasmus and the Vagabond by Astrid Lindgren

Disclosure: I received this book for review purposes only. No other compensation was received and all opinions are my own.

I could not put down this beautiful and truly delightful tale between a little boy and an accordion playing wanderer. It left me smiling, wanting more and looking to find Pippi Longstocking, to relive her adventure, too! What a story. Although suggested for young readers, everyone from young to old would enjoy this entertaining and heartfelt delight.

About the Book:
Softcover / 180 pages / (First published in 1956, re-published by Plough Publishing in 2014)

"After 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 imagined, 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?"

Rasmus and the Vagabond by Astrid Lindgren

What an adventure for such a young boy with the best ending ever. I cant wait to read it all over again, then offer it to my young daughter. The story is beautifully told, with a few amazing pencil drawings thrown in from time to time to share the scene. Pick up your own copy or try to win one below.
