Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carlee Hallman
This is one of a classic series of Swedish stories. Three blond triplets walk away from home to pick wild strawberries. They get lost and ask directions at a cottage. Living in the cottage there is a girl, Mary, about their age and a baby boy and a mother. The girl and her mother have patches on their clothes. The family agrees to help the triplets and Mary walks with Flicka, Ricka, and Dicka, guiding them home. The triplets then help their mother preserve the berries in jars. Mother pays them for the berries, and they use the money to buy a new dress for Mary and a toy bear for the baby. Mother also packs a basket of food for the family. These too-good-to-be-true girls make boring reading for the normal child. The watercolor pictures are in the style of the 1920's. This reissue may bring on a fit of nostalgia for some adults.

CHAPTER 1

Flicka, Ricka, and Dicka were three little girls who lived in Sweden long ago. They had blue eyes and golden curls, and they always dressed alike.

One day, they played in the garden all morning. Then they came in to ask if they might go on a picnic.

Mother stood in the sunny kitchen with empty jars before her. There were big jars and little jars, and they were all empty.


"I am wondering what fruit I can find to fill all of these jars," Mother said.


"I know—wild strawberries!" said Flicka. "We'll pick them for you."

Mother stood in the sunny kitchen with empty jars before her.

Long after they were in bed, they were still talking.

"We want to go on a picnic anyway," said Ricka. "It will be more fun to pick strawberries at the same time. We'll go early tomorrow."


"We will each pick a big basketful," promised Dicka.


Mother smiled. "That will be very nice," she said. "And I will pay you for each basket." Then she promised to pack a picnic lunch.


The three little girls ran to find their baskets. They talked all afternoon about where they would go to find the largest strawberries. Long after they were in bed, they were still talking.


Right after breakfast, Flicka, Ricka, and Dicka started on their way to pick wild strawberries.


Each little girl carried her own basket. Flicka carried the picnic lunch in a brown leather bag.


"It will be so much fun to have our own money," said Flicka.


"There are lots of things that we could buy," said Ricka.


Dicka was the last to leave. She fastened the garden gate and waved good-bye to Mother.
