Karlson flies again1962 Ilon Wikland
Mummy and daddy thought that Karlson was one of those imaginary playmates that children think up when they are lonely. So they bought Smidge a dog. Of course, Smidge loved his Bumble, but Karlson is a much better playmate. “It has to be fun, otherwise I won’t come!” says Karlson as he comes flying in through Smidge’s window – bright and cheery and always ready with more cunning tricks.
