I guess I am just a big kid at heart. I love this book, even in German.

Still a wonderful read, whether in German, or English, and probably even better in the original--translations lose so much, but Anna-Liesa Kornitzky's translation into the German does not seem to lose much. I am aware that a literary childhood missed cannot be made up for, but it cannot hurt to stick my toes into it's imaginary waters.

What I love beyond the story, is that I can read the German without having to translate in my head. Childrens's quality literature like this seems perfect for me, since when I read Grass or Walzer or the like, I will never get beyond translating. Oh well, as long as I am enjoying what I read.

Even in my weak and questionable German this book remains touching and moving in a most adult manner.

I am reading this children's classic in German, and it is wonderful. As a transplant, I am aware of how little I know about German children's literature, and and even though Lindgren is not German, the Anna-Liese Kornitzky is quite good. Like so much children's lit, you discover quickly that children my enjoy it, but adults may enjoy it even more.
