What a fantastic story! Astrid Lindgren has captured the wonder and excitement of a very young child discovering the world of nature, enjoying the freedom to roam freely while having the security of her home - Matt's Fort - and a most devoted father to watch her back.
At first I was a bit concerned that the theme, robbing, might give children an inappropriate message, but if you persevere you discover that in fact the message is that there are other ways to make a living.
There is also a message about loving your enemies, and finding other ways to settle scores than violence.
A wonderful book! And also a wonderful series on Prime!
