Astrid Lindgren books:
Pippi Longstocking (Pippi Longstocking 1)
When the first book about Pippi Longstocking is published in 1945 by the publishing firm, Rabén & Sjögren, it changes Astrid’s life. The book becomes a great success, loved by children and grown-ups the world over. A year or so later, Astrid Lindgren begins her work as children’s book editor for Rabén & Sjögren and is soon made responsible for the publication of children’s books. She writes her own books, in shorthand, sitting in her bed at home (in Dalagatan) until 11:30 in the mornings. In the afternoons she turns into Children’s Book Editor Lindgren which entails meetings with authors and illustrators at the publishing house, proofing texts and making decisions about what to publish. She stays with Rabén & Sjögren until her retirement in 1970.
