Lotta's bike/ by Astrid Lindgren
Lotta's Bike is a story about a little girl Lotta who really wants to have a two wheel bike like her brothers have. When on her birthday mom and dad did not buy a bicycle for her, Lotta decides to borrow it from "auntie Berg", a sweet and caring neighbor. Lotta surely will get in trouble with a two wheel bike, but everything ends well. Astrid Lindgren is a very engaging Swedish author, who is very well known and loved in Europe and Russia. Unfortunately very few of her books are known in the USA with the exception of Pippi Longstocking.
Other Lindgren's characters are Karlson, a flying man with a propeller; Emil from Lennerberg and Kalle Blumkvist, a detective.
