Book summary: Mirabelle

2003 BY ASTRID LINDGREN

Six-year-old Britta very much wants a doll, but her parents can’t afford one. One evening an odd little old man arrives driving a horse and cart. Britta opens the gate for him, and he thanks her by giving her a little yellow seed, with instructions to plant it, water it, and she’ll see something very funny. To her astonishment, a doll begins to grow in her garden! After harvesting, Britta learns that her new doll is much more special than she could ever have guessed.

Pija Lindenbaum has given new and delightfully quirky illustrations to Astrid Lindgren’s appealing fantasy.
