Buku ini benar-benar lucuuu...cerita dan ilustrasinya kompak bikin ketawa.Emil dari Lonneberg tinggal di Katthult, Swedia. Tidak ada satu pun penduduk yg tidak kenal di badung emil. Sampai-sampai penduduk Lonneberga mengumpulkan uang secara sukarela untuk biaya perjalanan mengirimkan emil ke Amerika. Mereka menyerahkan uang itu kepada ibu emil dengan harapan Lonneberga lebih tenang jika Emil tidak ada. Ibu Emil tentu saja marah, uang itu dilemparkan dengan sekuat tenaga hingga tersebar ke seluru ...more

This is the Afrikaans translation of Nya Hyss av Emil i Lonneberga (Emil i Lonneberga & Nya hyss av Emil i Lonneberga (Swedish) Imported ).

A self-indulgent trip down memory lane, this book was a remarkably entertaining read. Partly because it brought back some fond childhood memories, but also because it's really darn good. It's obviously a humourous book, but it also has lots of heart. There are some serious themes in here as well, such as the depiction of a poorhouse and the old folk who s
Going out to buy a liter of milk just now, I saw a tow-haired kid, probably about nine or ten, who was turning very competent cartwheels on the sidewalk just outside the railway station. A cap next to him contained a few coins.

I never give anything to the numerous beggars here, but he looked exactly like Emil in the movie and I found my hand reaching into my pocket. Swedes will understand.

Пакости, пакости и (пак)ости – “Емил от Льонеберя”

Е, бива ли така! Да имаш най-добри намерения, а все да се озоваваш в бараката за дърва. И то толкова често, че да си създадеш огромна колекция от издялкани дървени човечета, сътворени през безбройните часове наказания. Че подхожда ли това на бъдещ председател на общинския съвет? Не и ако той се казва Емил Свенсон, по-известен простичко като “Емил от Льонеберя”.

Without giving anything away, there's nothing I love more in a book than an evil, petty, selfish person getting their comeuppance. Well done, Emil.
The good people of Lönneberga want to send Emil to America, while the folks of Vimmerby only think they have something to fear in the comet that threatens to end the world ~ they haven't met Emil, yet. Emil is the sort of scamp for whom tool sheds were invented. He is up to plenty of mischief in this book, as he assists the cat in its job as mouser, digs a pit to capture a wolf, and torments a superintendent (who well deserves it). Tremendous fun and well worth reading! (It's as good on the thir ...more

Love love love Emil!

A great book! Emil certainly fills his role as Astrid Lindgren's boy version of Pippi Longstocking. It is definitely a simple text without too much content, but it's a funny read and would definitely be enjoyable for young readers.

A highlight is the hilarious points at which Lindgren jokes about the parent/child relationship. For example, when Emil and his father get separated in a crowd, the little boy jokes that he won't stand for this anymore.

Read this book with your children. Ms. Lindgren is a multi layered writer and brings in some serious themes that can be discussed with children. We read this aloud in our family and ended up in a powerful discussion about the farmhand and his feeling "trapped" into marrying the housemaid. While Ms. Lindgren's book is a light and fun, there is meat here and I cannot recommend it highly enough.

buku ini aku pinjem dari perpustakaan waktu sma. waktu itu aku ma adekku kayak orang culun, lagi baca bukunya pas umurnya udah belasan tahun, padahal kakak sepupuku udah baca dari umuran sd. ish. trus aku nemuin lagi judul baru di perpustakaan kota jogja. bukunya lucu, tiap kali baca pasti langsung ngomong "kok ya bisa gitu lho, anak sekecil itu."

Walaupun Emil terkenal akan nakalnya, namun jiwa sosial Emil terhadap sesama patut diacungi jempol. Yaitu pada saat Emil membuat acara Pesta Sikat Bersih dengan para penghuni panti.
"Kita kan harus memikirkan orang-orang Amerika juga. Bukankah mereka tak pernah menyusahkan kita? Mengapa mereka harus kita bebani dengan kenakalan Emil?"

Haahahaa love this part!!
This is an utterly charming book. I loved Pippi Longstocking when I was a girl and now I wish I'd known Emil back then as well. The illustrations are a delight too.
I did not really like this book because I don't like getting into trouble and the book is about getting into trouble
Selalu mengocok perut! Saya lebih suka Emil daripada Pippi. mungkin karena tokoh utamanya cowok! *bias ;p
