In the big, red house down by the river, Madicken lives there. There also live mother and father and little sister Lisabet and a black poodle called Sasso, and a kitten called Gosan. And then Alva.

Madicken's real name is Margareta, but when she was little she called herself Madicken, and although she is now almost seven years old, she still calls herself that. It is only when she needs to be admonished that she is called Margareta. It is quite often that. Because she has so many crazy whims and never thinks for ... Until afterwards.

It was followed by two sequels, Pippi Goes on Board and Pippi in the South Seas. Ms. Lindgren had a long, prolific career, writing more than 100 picture books, poems, short stories, plays, screenplays, and novels.
