The Children of Noisy Village by Astrid Lindgren

I was reading a paranormal romance that takes place in Sweden and a character mentioned Astrid Lindgren's World, a theme park devoted to Pipi Longstocking. I was floored. A theme park named after an author! How cool is that! This led to a friend telling me how much she loved The Children of Noisy Village when she was a child, so I just had to read it. Noisy Village is a grouping of three farms and all the children in each of the farm houses play together and have quaint Swedish adventures. I hope that children still discover and love this book, although it does let the cat out of the bag about Santa.
