The Lovereading4Kids comment
Magical and touching, the adventures of two brothers in the fantasy land they arrive in after their tragically early deaths is an uplifting as well as an exciting story. After their deaths, Jonathan and Karl are united in the ‘land beyond the stars’ and here they need all the courage and goodness they can find in their hearts to save the peaceful valley from the evil that threatens it. Winner of awards too numerous to mention, Astrid and her books have delighted generations of children and this one is no exception.
The Brothers Lionheart by Astrid Lindgren
My brother, Jonathan, knew that I was going to die. 'How can things be so terrible,' I asked. 'That some people have to die, when they're not even ten years old?' 'I don't think it's that terrible,' said Jonathan. 'I think you'll have a marvellous time.' A tender story of courage, love, and life after death from the author of Pippi Longstocking.
