I am always on the look out for books that my reluctant reader will enjoy, so when I was offered the chance to review Rasmus and the Vagabond by Astrid Lindgren I gladly accepted. I recently read Pippi Longstocking for the first time are fell in love with the story and Astrid Lingren’s writing style.
About the book
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?
About the Author
Astrid Lindgren is the author of dozens of world-famous books. She has thrilled three generations of children with her story telling and holds numerous awards and honors.
What We Thought
Rasmus and the Vagabond is 180 pages full of excitement. Simple black and white illustrations are sprinkled throughout the story add to the fun. It is a page turner that we didn’t want to put down! Each chapter is full of adventure that will be enjoyed by boys and girls alike. Unexpected twists and turns leave you wanting more.
The story tells of a boy who feels unwanted and unloved so he goes on a search to find parents who want him. It is a good old-fashioned story of a simpler time. Themes of friendship, family, and honesty fill the book. It is a beautiful classic. We loved everything about this book and I can’t wait to read even more titles from the amazing author, Astrid Lingren.
