    Springtime in Noisy village

    1965 Ilon Wikland

    When spring arrives, all the children in A Day at Noisy Village go wild. They climb on the barn roof, they ride on the bull. They balance along the top of the fence and clomp through the mud. Britta, Lisa and Anna build a cubby house in the meadow. Ollie, Lars and Pip make boats out of bark and sail them along the creek. And little Kerstin – she pulls up all of mummy’s jonquils when she is supposed to go and pick wildflowers. Then, when evening comes, the children burn piles of leaves and dance with excitement around the spring fires.
