Review below Through the many lists that I have acquired through out the years on books to read aloud to and books to let middle readers delve into, Astrid Lindgren has always been recommended There are a few titles I often see, including her heroine Pippi Longstocking, but what about for the hero inclined aka boy readers Thus, we have Rasmus.I love this cover The book itself has that soft feel and the colors and image to the cover image are very attractive Kudos Eric Palmquist For my personal book lists for my students I am a fan of the vintage classic books and it makes my heart smile when publishers republish titles that are worthwhile to be in the hands of a child Originally published in 1956 and renewed and reinvigorated with life for a new generation for 2015, Plough has this in a pretty package Even the back cover text is in attractive fonts and shades Rasamus and the Vagabond is engaging for the young reader Our hero here is about the age of nine, and my 5.5 year old daughter is not quite ready for it alone, but I plan to have him nearby for introduction within a few years I think she shall meet Pippi first I won t hesitate to read this aloud to her at this point little violence, but much like a classic old tv western but would want to wait to have her read it alone to make sure she would discuss with me any fears and situations.I d recommend this if you enjoy Pippi, or Charlie and the Chocolate Factory , or Wilbur Charlotte s Web 14 chapters of adventure that can create discussion and truly make you think.posted I received this product free for the purpose of reviewing it I received no other compensation for this review The opinions expressed in this review are my personal, honest opinions Your experience may vary Please read my full disclosure policy for details. , .

Poor Poor Rasmus If only he had curly hair and better yet was a little girl instead of a boy with straight hair Surely if he was, the nice families would come and adopt him from the orphanage, Right While the older boys try to tell Rasmus to stop hoping for a family, he simply can t give up the dream and settle into the orphanage life, which is all he has ever known Rasmus is a pretty good boy, but he just cannot take the orphanage any and he runs away wishing for freedom and hopefully a family It turns out, freedom is scary when you are a little kid in a dark, cold and foodless world Oh, he forgot about hunger And Man, is he cold Thankfully our little friend bumps into the friendly Oscar not too long into his newfound independence A disheveled, friendly man who declares himself to be God s best friend Together Rasmus and Oscar travel the countryside in search of food They sing for their supper Oscar is a wonderful accordion player how can earn decent money when he tries and do various chores to get by The country setting makes me want to get out of the city immediately and go for a stroll down some dirt road and just enjoy the world for a bit In fact, I was jealous of it all if I am honest and can see why Oscar chose to be a wandering bum The world isn t all rosy for our friends The police suspect them of stealing all the time, and they bump into two very bad men I do not want to wreck the surprise or storyline, but this isn t just a cute story about a friendship between a lonely boy and a nice man There s action in it to keep the kids entertained Action with guns, and rolling fist fights, Jail time and secret hideouts.For a book written in 1956, Rasmus and the Vagabond sure is a timeless and wonderful read Astrid Lindgren does a fantastic job writing books that kids and adults both love There was emotion that made me want to hug poor little Rasmus and his fantasy of a mom to hug him when he is sick, and action enough that kept me reading late into the night to see what was going to happen When I closed the book I literally sighed a happy sigh and went to sleep with a big silly smile on my face I thought I knew how it would end, but I didn t guess correctly I have read a number of Lindgren books, and this one is my favorite so far I am so glad that Plough Publishing re released this story using the same illustration as the older hardback versions the book world is a better place because of it New York Book Review is releasing two other Lindgren books in May that I am eagerly awaiting so I can read them too Mio My Son, and Seacrow Island so be on the lookout for those too It has gotten to the point where I don t have to know what the book is about, if Astrid Lindgren wrote it, I m going to read it I know it s early in the year still, but for now Rasmus and the Vagabond is my favorite read of 2015 I received a copy of this book for review and its going on my favorites shelf.
