This is one of the rare books which are just as amazing when you re-read it for your children as it was when your parents read it aloud to you. I can't tell how many hours of my childhood were spent playing Ronja and Birk.
Astrid Lindgren was probably the first author to regard children as persons in their own right and not just small adults who were to be groomed and taught manners and kept in place. She wrote her books from the magical point of view of the children which was entirely groundbreaking at the time.

The book is amazingly well written. I found myself wiping tears from my eyes several times while reading the book aloud to my daughter due to the amazing descriptions of the relations between the characters. I'm not usually tearful, but this book really gets to me.
