The writing in this book is somewhat simplistic, but the pictures (all of them are paintings or sketches done by Larsson himself of his family members) are very lovely. He is from Sweden and is one of my favorite artists. His paintings are of happy family times.
Why don't we see illustrations like this in books any more? This is another book of Carl Larsson's paintings accompanied by Lennart Rudstrom's text, detailing the Larsson family. The author is totally correct in his assertion that every picture is a story.
