Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The "Ready-for-Chapters" series, geared toward new readers of full-length stories, has added this important classic to its list. Unhappy five-year-old Lotta decides to move out of her family's house and over to her next door neighbor's attic. Her mother and neighbor amiably agree that the little one should do whatever she wants, so the awkward situation is resolved only when Lotta herself decides she is lonely living alone and returns to her parents' loving arms. Lindgren's well-known Pippi Longstocking has met her match in Lotta Nyman, whose unreasonable moodiness and wanton destruction of property may be 'typical' behavior for that age, but her parents' refusal to apply discipline is disconcerting to older readers. Nevertheless, the young readers for which this tale was written will be encouraged that their angry lapses can be resolved with such compassionate understanding. Cartoon drawings add just the right touch of whimsical humor. Since Swedish Astrid Lindgren, who started writing in the 1940s, had such uncanny insight into the deepest thoughts and feelings of the young, reprints of her work in inexpensive form are long overdue. Further adventures featuring Lotta's family can be found in several sequels, including The Children on Troublemaker Street, also part of this series. Books by classic authors like Lindgren should be on the shelves of every library—school, public and private. 2001 (orig. 1962), Aladdin Paperbacks/Simon & Schuster, $3.99. Ages 7 to 10.
