    Sunnanäng

    1959 Ilon Wikland

    “Long ago, in the days of poverty…”
    This is how every one of the beautiful stories in this book begins. Sunnanäng tells us about the two little children, Anna and her brother Matthew. They were alone in the world and had to work like slaves for the farmer in Myra. In the story My Nightingale is Singing, the little poor-child Malin’s heart longs so desperately for something happy and beautiful to happen in the poorhouse in Norka, that one day a linden tree grows up, from a garden pea.
