Review by

Six stories about farm boy Emil, the most mischievous child in Sweden! He lives with his parents, his sisters Lina and Ida, and their farmhand Alfred. Emil's pranks often get him into trouble and then he is sent to the tool shed to carve little wooden men - 369 in total! During the course of the stories Emil is chased by a mad cow, teaches his pet pig to dance, plants a frog in a lunch basket, locks his father in the dunny and saves Alfred's life amongst other enterprising and best intentioned deeds. Emil is a thoroughly delightful character and these stories will make you laugh out loud.
