These Lotta stories are charming, funny and convincing. Lotta is a little sister who never seems to be far from trouble. In this story Lotta and her younger siblings have all kinds of adventures including making their pancake tree. Astrid Lindgren is best known for creating Pippi Longstocking; Lotta is as delightful and very much from the same mould. Be sure to also check out Lotta Makes A Mess.


Lotta Says 'no!' by Astrid Lindgren

A collection of fun, engaging and gently humorous stories about Lotta, the little sister who can find trouble anywhere. She and her young siblings get into all sorts of scrapes, from falling out of their old neighbour's windows and learning some very bad swear words, to making their own pancake tree.

About the Author

Astrid Lindgren

Astrid Lindgren was born Astrid Ericsson on November 14, 1907 on a farm called Nas outside the small town of Vimmerby in Sweden. As a child, Astrid loved to read, particularly books which had girls as the heroine. She loved Anne of Green Gables and the Pollyanna books. One of her strongest recollections as a child was meeting two pilots, Captains Sonders and Madicken. One of them tried to land on the roof of her house, or that is the way it looked at the time.

After attending public school, she moved to Stockholm and married Sture Lindgren. The Lindgrens had two children. Astrid wrote her first story, Britt-Mari Opens Her Heart, in 1944. Her second book, Pippi Longstocking, which she wrote as a present for her daughter's tenth birthday, was published in 1945. She received the Raben & Sjogren's Best Children's Book prize for Pippi and became a book editor for that publisher for many years. She also received numerous other honours and awards including the International Book Award.

Astrid published more than one hundred books in her lifetime and is still the most popular children's author in Sweden. Her books have been translated into more than sixty languages. She died in 2002, aged 94.
