When my sisters and I were younger, we would never miss out on a chance to go to a library book sale with Mom! We'd always find the best old books there, like this charming series, written and illustrated by Maj Lindman. Originally published in the 40's and 50's, each book follows the adventures of three little Swedish girls. The girls are nearly identical with blue eyes, blonde hair, and different matching outfits in every book. The stories are wholesome and warm, with the girls meeting new friends and enjoying mild adventures together. We always found it amazing that they never argued or fought amongst themselves, even though they are always together! Great for young readers, each two-page spread includes a page of large print text, opposite a colorful, full-page illustration. 32 pages each - Jess
