An old favorite, now shared with my children.
Rasmus the orphan child shows the importance of touch and listening to children. Oscar the vagabond, loveable and surprising becomes a hero in more than one way.

Manchmal muss man sich selber helfen! Wenn man ein Waisenkind ist und dazu noch ein Junge mit glattem Haar, den keiner haben will, kann man ebenso gut tot sein, denkt Rasmus. Aber dann hat er eine Idee: Er könnte aus dem Waisenhaus fortlaufen. Es ist doch nicht ausgeschlossen, dass es irgendwo auf der Welt jemanden gibt, der einen Jungen mit glattem Haar haben will. Und eines Nachts setzt Rasmus seine Idee in die Tat um ..

Meine Meinung:
Ich liebe dieses Buch, denn es hat mich währen
This book has all the elements of a really good story: likeable characters with well-defined "good guys" and "bad guys", lots of action, interesting setting (Sweden in the summer), and working through a problem to a delightful solution. It has an old-timey feel, probably because parts of the plot seem to be from another time and place. Rasmus lives in an orphanage where prospective parents come periodically to look at the children as one would nowadays go to an animal shelter and pick out a pupp ...more

راسموس طفل يتيم يبحث عن بيت يجد فيه العطف والحنان. لكن جميع الذي يأتون لاختيار طفل يرغبون في تبني بنات صغيرات بشعر مجعد، وليس صبيانياً بشعر أملس. ولذلك يهرب راسموس. ثم يلتقي متشرداً يدعى أوسكار والذي كان مشردا مثله. يتورط الاثنان مع اللصوص والشرطة، وتواجههم أحداث مثيرة ينجوان منها بصعوبة..
Read this in Dutch.
A thrilling and heart-warming book. Realistic enough for me!

Perhaps not for 6 year old Ryan, maybe better for 8 [or 7?] year olds.

That's the book of my childhood! :)

Книжката е чудна! Изключително много се радвам, че я прочетох, пък макар и на 23! Когато я свърших, облегнах лактите си на балкона, погледнах белите облаци на яркосиньото небе, засмях се и си казах: Не е ли СТРАХОТЕН животът! Учудвам се, че не е сред най-популярните романи на Астрид Линдгрен, защото има всички качества да бъде! Препоръчвам го сърдечно! Препоръчвам също и биографията на авторката, защото познаването на творческия й и личен път, със сигурност обогатява разбирането на книгите й (от ...more
Rasmus started at an orphanage and then travelled for a long time with a vagabond. They found a secret cellar in a cottage they stayed in. It was filled with jewels and gold. Then robbers came and Rasmus locked one in the cellar. The other one fell off a cliff because he was chasing the vagabond. They took all the gold to the sheriff. They went to a farmhouse to stay for the night and they met the farmer and his wife. They were about to go to the same orphanage that Rasmus started out at. They a ...more

One of the most amazing books for a child to read. First read it when I was seven. after crying my eyes out, and taking 3 days of crying to get through the sad part, I got through it, and read it a million times more!
I certainly recommend it to anyone at their teens, even above, but mostly best for kids..
Great book!

I've been trying to find out the title of the charming book from my childhood for some time now, and despite being a big fan of Lindgren, I didn't realise that this was the book until recently.
I will write a longer review when I re-read it, but for now, I don't have much to go on except fond childhood memories.
I have been reading aloud this book for many years to my third grade classes. It celebrates the love and need children have for their parents. The plot is well written and includes good guys and bad as well as cops and robbers! It has a most wonderful ending . My students always love this story.
Zwei schöne Abenteuer-Geschichten für Kinder. Vielleicht ein bisschen zu sehr für Kinder nach meinem Geschmack, aber wenn man sich darauf einlassen kann, bieten sowohl Rasmus und der Landstreicher als auch Rasmus, Pontus und der Schwertschlucker liebenswerte Unterhaltung. 4 Sterne für beide.
Ik vind het boek in de boekenkast van het vakantiehuisje op Styrsö en val voor de warmte, de verbeelding. De dagen daarna kan ik niet meer door een zomerveld lopen zonder zoemende hommels te horen, zonder een beetje Rasmus te zijn en de wijde wereld aan mijn voeten te voelen.
I am not sure exactly why, but I absolutely LOVED this book as a child -- must have read and re-reat it dozens of times. And re-reading it again as an adult, I found it equally charming -- maybe because of all the good memories it evoked.

My second reading of this was better than the first. Replete with nice little views of the Swedish countryside and spicy language, eg "blithering idiot", for the youngsters. Lindgren's is a gentle realism.

A wonderful, delightful read with a sweet ending. I remember to this day my elementary school teacher reading this to our class, and loving every minute of it.
Growing up in Sweden it is almost impossible to not have read Astrid Lindgren. This is however not one of the most memorable of her adaptions.
Read it when I was 11. Remembered the name and a few bits of the story all of a sudden :)
A sweet story. Astrid Lindgren was a very good writer, I love her work!
A great one, but not as perfect as Ronja or the Bullerby kids
This was my all-time favorite book as a kid.
