Ronia, the Robber's daughter

When I first received Astrid's manuscript about Ronia, I thought: I am the first person, who is allowed to read a new book, written by Astrid. As usual I asked her at once: What do they look like? What clothes do they wear? What does the landscape look like? What does the castle look like? Astrid told me and I made drafts, which I showed her, before I made the originals.


The tower of the castle I found in Haapsalu in Estonia and the robbers I found outside the Systembolaget, the government owned chain of liquor stores in Sweden. And where do you find a “rumpnisse”? Perhaps it is a selfportrait?
