Madicken review ó 103

read & download Madicken

Tag neue Abenteuer erleben und dabei eine ganze Menge anstellen Der Mädchen und Familienklassiker zum Vor und Selberlesen in neuer Ausstattun. Sometimes you shouldn t let the perfect be the enemy of the good The great Manny Rayner extols this book published in Swedish in 1960 as Madicken in both the original Swedish and its German translation The English translation is supposed to be sub par however I really enjoyed the adventures of 9 year old Meg Peterson a girl with too much imagination and too little sense as she attempts to replicate parachuting out of an airplane portraying Pharoah s daughter discovering Moses amongst the bulrushes or skating on a frozen river much too far from home Too often Meg shanghaies her 5 year old sister Betsy into her wild schemesWritten by Astrid Lindgren best known for Pippi Longstocking Mischievous Meg features a heroine unlike the unrealistically well behaved storybook children Meg gets up to all kinds of mischief despite her best intentions However I have to admit that I didn t enjoy the book whether because of the translation or because of the book itself or because I read it in paperback rather than listened to it on Audible as much as I did Lindgren s The Children of Noisy Village As with The Children of Noisy Village I was at home sick when I devoured Mischievous Meg in a single morning but it wasn t as delightful Like The Children of Noisy Village Mischievous Meg is set in a rural Sweden before automobiles became ubiuitous and before radio and television What a delight to see Meg and Betsy play at being pirates or elegant ladies or the biblical Joseph At the risk of sounding like an old lady it s sad how much has been lost to television the Xbox and the Internet So I ll take my own advice and not let the perfect be the enemy of the good Mischievous Meg provided a welcome balm when I was in bed sick and that s good enough

Madicken

Madita heißt eigentlich Margareta aber als sie noch klein war nannte sie sich selbst Madita Jetzt ist sie fast sieben und wird immer noch Madi. We ve read it with my daughther following Manny s advice I never saw such response from my child She was jumping around her room laughing out loud she wanted to discuss every plotline because they all affected something inside of herMost intersting thing is that I never saw such reaction on any fairy tale book Common opinion that kids tend to love imaginery worlds full of fabricated characters Madicken there is a mess between madita and madicken titles but I figured book we ve just read is this oneis totally realistic Even Ultomte Swedish Santa is revealed as a Ture the neighbor That was a lesson about my daughter for me tooAnyway the book is unbelievble fun

Ta gerufen Nur wenn sie etwas angestellt hat wird sie Margareta genannt Und sie wird ziemlich oft so genannt denn auf Birkenlund kann man jeden. This book reminded me why A Lindgren was my favorite author when I was a kid Her books just radiate such warmness And humor is amazing There were some serious themes in this book also poverty alcoholism insanity Madita goes into my favorites shelf like most of other Lindgren s books

    I liked it but it bothered me that her mother was always so mean to that neighbour boy I'm sure he just wanted to have fun and play with her Just because he was poor didn't mean she had to be so rude He just liked playing with her and doing fun things No need to be so stuck up Her daughter always did much worse things on her own after all like jumping off the roof with an umbrella but all he did was make a funny joke about a ghost

    This was never one of my favorite stories by Astrid Lindgren when growing up and I still find it less enjoyable than a few other of her works
