Ronja, The Robber's Daughter Summary

Ronja, The Robber's Daughter by Astrid Lindgren

Now a major animated TV series from Studio Ghibli! Ronja lives with her father, a robber chieftain, and his band of men in their fortress on the top of a mountain. On the night Ronja was born, a bolt of lightning split the stronghold in two, leaving a huge chasm - Hell's Gap - in between. Soon Ronja is old enough to explore the forest around her, but she must beware of the grey dwarfs and wild harpies that live there. One day she meets Birk, the son of a rival robber leader who has claimed the other side of Hell's Gap, and upon whom Ronja's father instantly declares war. Ronja and Birk develop a friendship that is as indestructible as the mountain fortress itself. But with their families sworn enemies they are forced to keep their friendship a secret until one fateful day when Ronja's father catches Birk . . . prompting Ronja and Birk to escape into the woods and fend for themselves. How long can Ronja and Birk survive in the magical forest? And will their fathers ever put aside their differences to get their beloved children back?

About Astrid Lindgren

Astrid Lindgren was born in Sweden in 1907. During the course of her life she wrote over 40 books for children. She once commented: 'I write to amuse the child within me, and can only hope that other children may have some fun that way too.' Many of her stories are based upon her memories of childhood, and filled with lively and unconventional characters. Perhaps the best known is Pippi Longstocking, first published in Sweden in 1945. It was an immediate success with children, and was later published in England in 1954. During her lifetime, Lindgren was awarded dozens of Swedish and international prizes for her writing, among them the prestigious Hans Christian Andersen medal in 1958: widely considered the ultimate accolade for an author of children's books. In 1989 a theme park dedicated to her - Astrid Lindgren's World - was opened in the author's home town of Vimmerby. She died in 2002.
