I adored Astrid Lindgren as a child (Francesca Simon, author of the 'Horrid Henry' books.)

I read the book both as a child and as an adult, and I feel it's one of the greatest books written for children (Amazon reviewer) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
I was about eight when I first got this book as a Christmas present from my parents. The story tells of a young girl born into a band of robbers during 'a dark and stormy night.' The robbers, whose leader Ronia's father is, live in a castle that was split in half by lighting the night Ronia was born. The other half of the castle is inhabited by a rival group of robbers whose leader has a son the same age as Ronia. One summer Ronia meets Birk, her counterpart, in the woods, and the children start a secret friendship.

Filled with wholesome adventures in the woods, interesting creatures (none of them TOO scary), and a conflict of families that gets solved in the end, the book is a delight. This book remains one of my favorite books from childhood, one that I read many times and always looked forward to reading again.

I received this book when I was about 10 years old. I have now read it for my daughter who is 6. She absolutely loves it as well as other Astrid Lindgren stories. Since we are Swedish we have read almost everything by this fabulous author, but I believe Ronia is one of my daughters absolute favorites. I urge everyone who have enjoyed anything by Astrid Lindgren to browse through all her books. You will not be disappointed, regardless of age!

I am 11 years old and this is the best book I have ever read. Ronia is adventurous and willing to do to anything she puts her mind to. She is not afraid to go out in the woods and is able to take care of herself. The book made me feel like I was Ronia! After finishing the book, I almost wanted to read it again! I recommend this book to anyone!!

I read the book both as a child and as an adult, and I feel it's one of the greatest books written for children as well as adults. Both Ronia and Birk are great role models, and even with the emergence of other strong literary role models for girls, this is a must-read for girls (as well as female adults as there is little emphasis on gender-typing. The English translation by Patricia is very close to the original, and hence, offers a great reading experience.

A beautiful book. The familial relationships and questions of Ronia echo every inquisitive child, and the magic of the forest, along with its inhabitants will enthrall any active imagination. Thoroughly recommend this book for children of any age and adults who like to believe in trolls, gnomes, harpies and spirits.

I also read this book as a little girl and couldn't put it down. Ronia is exactly how I want my daughters to be someday: independent, fierce, adventurous, and willing to use moss as a pillow.

The last time I read this book was when I was nine, but the images have stayed with me all this time. I got my copy of RONIA a couple of days ago from Amazon.com, and it is better than I remembered. The aching loving relationship between parents and children, and the pain of making choices that come against that (called 'growing up') is beautifully brought out in this brilliant tale, set against a landscape of a forest with dark stands of trees, populated by beasts of the earth, and harpies and dwarves, and a lighting-riven castle. Although not quite so explicit, it is a Romeo and Juliet type story, with the charm and appeal of innocence. Ronia is a headstrong heroine who will capture your imagination instantly!

My daughter really enjoyed this book it has abit of myth in it. On the night Ronia is born there is a terrible storm with harpies flying outside "Matt's Fortress" the home of Ronia her mother and father and there band of robbers. It is a story about being able to make friend's with other children even if their parent's can't get along!. You can't help but love Ronia as she is a real free spirit. A great book for age 8 and over.
