"I write for the child in me"

I think my favourite Astrid Lindgren book is Mio Min Mio. Oh, it was so scary, I thought, but also rather delightful. I still remember a description of leaves that looked like silver. And I always think of that when I see leaves which do look like silver. Funny how images from long ago can stay with you...

I also really liked The Brothers Lionheart. Another scary story. And so terribly sad!

Isn't it funny how it's the scary ones I preferred? I liked Pippi and Emil well enough, but just not as much....
