About the Author

Astrid Lindgren (1907–2002) was born in Vimmerby, Sweden, and grew up in the Småland countryside, a setting that later formed the backdrop for many of her books. In 1944, she began writing the Pippi Longstocking stories, which she had invented over the years to entertain her daughter, Karin. In addition to writing more than forty children’s books, Lindgren published and produced plays and screenplays, and was politically active. In 2003 the Swedish government created the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award in her honor. The New York Review Children’s Collection also publishes Seacrow Island.

Ilon Wikland was born in Estonia and came as a refugee to Sweden in 1944. In 1953, she met Astrid Lindgren, who had just finished writing Mio, My Son. Wikland is the artist who has illustrated the greatest number of Lindgren’s books.
