Mio, my Son

In 1953 I applied for a job as an illustrator at the publishers Rabén & Sjögren. There I met Astrid for the first time. I showed her my drawings and asked for a job of any kind as long as I was allowed to draw. Astrid had just finished writing Mio, my Son and she gave me a couple of chapters to illustrate. Happily I went home and made my illustrations- and I got the job! That was the first book I illustrated for Astrid Lindgren. After that I have never been without a job.
