Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1–4—Triplets Flicka, Ricka, and Dicka are thrilled with their new "shiny skates on white shoes" and they take them along when they visit their aunt and uncle. Uncle Jon warns them to stay away from the thin ice across the lake, but a boy chases the girls' dog into the dangerous area and they both fall in. Luckily all ends well with hot chocolate and cookies. While this quaint reprint of the 1950 picture book will appeal to fans of the Swedish sisters, parents who remember their adventures fondly might be horrified at the dangerous situation and lack of adult supervision. The illustrations are charming but the tale is not compelling beyond the nostalgia factor.—Anne Connor, Los Angeles Public Library

    A wonderful discovery! Would love to read all the books. Great illustrations.

    These books are a treasure. I would love to own the entire series in hardcover. The story was delightful and brought back memories of my childhood. Bought two more copies and gave them as gifts to my sisters and they were thrilled. The beautiful illustrations are classic. So happy to see more of Maj. Lindman's books being published again.
