I got the job to illustrate Karlsson-on-the Roof in the year 1955. At that time I was in Paris and I looked for Karlsson everywhere. In the Halls in Paris I found him – a small man with blue trousers and a chequered shirt. Karlsson is a Frenchman!


Later on when I illustrated the Karlsson books, I phoned Astrid and told her how much fun it was. “It must be fun”, Astrid said, “Otherwise it will not be good”.
