“…a suspicious resemblance to Bambi.” Barbro Lindgren’s description of the story written by her as a 12-year-old and sent to editor Astrid Lindgren at Raben&Sjögren.
“Those got returned, of course, with some encouraging words from Astrid. She wrote that all authors have their first manuscripts refused, and it was no reason to get discouraged! And indeed I didn’t. I thought just getting a letter was fantastic. And this letter was from Astrid, and it had wax seals! ”
Now the manuscript is exhibited at the ongoing Nordic Children’s Books Convention. #nbbk2015 #sølvberget
