The Lovereading4Kids comment
From the world famous creator of Pippi Longstocking comes this touching magical adventure about an unhappy little boy who meets a genie and is transported from the misery of his life to Farawayland. Once Karl Anders, an unwanted foster child, in Farawayland he becomes Mio, the son of a king with a vital role to play in defeating the evil Sir Kato who is terrorising the land. Mio tells his own story capturing the excitement of the adventure and the enchantment and wonder of the make-believe.
Mio's Kingdom by Astrid Lindgren
Did you hear the news about a boy who disappeared? No one knows what happened to him ...except me. Young Karl leaves behind his unhappy life as an unwanted foster child to escape to Farawayland. There, he learns that his true name is Mio, and that he is the son of the king. But the kingdom is under threat. The evil Sir Kato terrorizes the land, and it has been foretold that Mio is the only one who can defeat him ...Originally published in Swedish in 1954, Astrid Lindgren's tale of Mio became a worldwide children's classic. It is celebrated in this heritage edition, complete with a new and faithful English translation.
