When Rasmus runs away from the orphanage, Oscar finds him, and they become a team, a team of tramps. What Rasmus really wants, however, is a home, and they both know that he is only biding his time until he finds a family who wants him. Along the way, they have an adventure with thieves, and then, finally Rasmus finds a home. But is it really what he wants? Will he stay? Or will he keep wandering with Oscar?
I was so excited when I saw this book by Astrid Lindgren on my list! I have such fond memories of reading Pippi Longstocking when I was a little girl that I knew that my children and I would love this book, too. And we did. Such a simple story with a lot of good, clean fun, we all enjoyed it, laughing out loud many times. And I must admit that I was surprised by the ending, but it was a pleasant surprise. I'm so glad that Plough Publishing has re-released this book! My oldest daughter already wants to reread it!
I want to thank Plough Publishing for my review copy of this book, but my opinions are my own.
First, I am a child of God, adopted into His family through the blood of His Son Jesus Christ. Second, I am helpmeet to my husband John of sixteen years. Third, I am mother to Sarah Beth who is ten years old, to Daniel who turned nine in February, to Rachel who turned seven at the end of January, to Mary who turned five in December, and to Hannah who turned one in February.
