    Emil in the soup tureen / Emil and the great escape

    1963 Björn Berg

    All the people in Lönneberga felt sorry for the Svenssons in Katthult who had such a rascal for a son. If only they’d known that Emil was going to become Chairman of the Local Council when he grew up! But this book is not about that. It’s about all the mischief – like that time when Emil got his head got stuck in the soup tureen and that unfortunate Sunday when he hoisted little Ida up the flagpole.

    Emil Gets into Mischief / Emil's Pranks

    1966 Björn Berg

    When this story begins, Emil has just carved his ninety-seventh little wooden figure and when it ends he’s already made one hundred and twenty-five of them. So you can work out how many pranks he’s got up to in the meantime. How he’s poured dumpling mixture over his father, for example, and celebrated his hundredth carving jubilee in the wood store and how he shocked them all in Katthult when he put on a Christmas party for everybody at the poorhouse.

  • Emil and His Clever Pig

    Emil and His Clever Pig

    1970 Björn Berg

    Emil doesn’t mean any harm really – he just happens to eat fermented cherries and gets drunk together with the rooster and the pig. And afterwards, when he’s about to repent and become a Good Templar, he accidentally sets fire to the vicar’s wife with his magnifying glass … but Emil is a nice boy, deep down, and when he is sitting there in the woodshed having carved his one-hundred-and-thirtieth little wooden figure, he prays earnestly: “Dear God, please make me stop doing mischief. Kind regards, Emil Svensson, Katthult, Lönneberga.”

    Lina, the maid at Katthult, had a terrible toothache.
    “You’d better go to Sme-Pelle”, said Alfred. Sme-Pelle is the name they gave the local blacksmith. He used to extract aching teeth with his gruesome pair of tongs. “How much does he charge for one tooth?” asked Lina. “Fifty öre per hour”, said Alfred.

    Emil spent most of his time in the wood shed, and he actually didn’t really mind. But Emil’s little sister never got to sit in there. “And Ida also liked being in the woodshed. She thought it would be fun to be shut up in the woodshed sometime. But, of course, then she would have to be bad, and poor little Ida could never manage that! ‘I’ll try to think up something’, she said to Emil.”

    Inget knussel, sa Emil i Lönneberga

    1986 Björn Berg

    One snowy day in Katthult there was a party. It turned into a fun and rather unusual party, mostly thanks to the teacher. She was a jolly young woman with lots of good ideas and now she suggested they’d have a snowball fight before dinner. And they sure had a snowball fight! Later on there was even more merriment when Emil kissed the vicar’s wife no less than eight times, ‘cause he certainly wasn’t stingy, that Emil boy!

    “Mischief isn’t something you think up – it just happens”, as Emil so wisely said once to his little sister Ida. That’s exactly how it was when he got his head stuck in the soup tureen!
