In the Land of Twilight by Astrid Lindgren as one of our bedtime stories this week. Astrid Lindgren created the character of Pippi Longstocking to entertain her daughter. Lindgren was awarded the Hans Christian Andersen Medal for her contribution to international children's literature. This is a delightful story that shares the power of the imagination in the setting of Stockholm and painted in beautiful shades of twilight. Goran has an injured leg and he gets bored spending so much time in bed. ...more
A soft, warm & quiet book, with lovely impressionistic renderings of Stockholm. In the Land of Twilight, anything is possible, the animals are free, and even a bad leg isn't enough to put you down.

I love Astrid Lindgren!

Ljuvlig! Så roligt med Stockholmsmiljön också. Bara titeln är ju fantastisk.

En riktigt underhållande och fin liten historia!! <33
"Spelar ingen roll," sa herr Liljonkvast. "Spelar ingen roll i Skymningslandet."
Most certainly one of my favourite books of all time.
