About the Book and Illustrator
For readers aged 6 – 9 years this book continues the adventures of the six young characters, created by Astrid Lindgren, who live in Noisy Village. The book includes lots of fun illustrations in black and white by Mini Grey, making it a really accessible book for young independent readers but slightly younger children will also enjoying listening to the gently sibling rivalry and funny antics of the children and their families.
This is the book is the third in The Children of Noisy Village collection and you can find out more about the other titles on the author’s website. (It does not matter if you have not read the first two books in this series of gentle stories set over half a century ago in rural Sweden).
I really enjoyed this story because I liked how the children interacted with each other
The book is a collection of short, fun stories. It involves three families who all live in the same village.
One of the girls, called Lisa, is actually telling the stories of what happens in their daily lives. During one part it was her 7th birthday where she said it was the best one ever.
All of the children in the story get along quite well but also played pranks on each other, but the girls sometimes got scared because the boys were making scary noises. This just made the girls want to get revenge.
I really enjoyed this story because I liked how the children interacted with each other. It reminded me of the times my friends and I have played tricks on each other.
I recommend this book to children aged 6-9 who enjoy stories they can relate to.
