Astrid Lindgren was a Swedish children's author who wrote some of the most beloved children's books of all time, including Pippi Longstocking, Emil of Lönneberga, and Ronja the Robber's Daughter.

She was born in 1907 in Vimmerby, Sweden, and grew up on a farm. She began writing stories as a child, and her first book was published in 1945.

Lindgren was a strong advocate for children's rights, and her books often explored themes of independence, imagination, and self-reliance. She was awarded the Hans Christian Andersen Award in 1958, and the Right Livelihood Award in 1994.

She died in 2002 at the age of 94. Her books have been translated into over 100 languages and have sold over 160 million copies worldwide.

A childhood without books – that would be no childhood. That would be like being shut out from the enchanted place where you can go and find the rarest kind of joy.
