Soda PopLindgren, Barbro. Soda Pop.

Gecko Press, 2017. ISBN 9781776570102.

A hilarious and wacky children's classic reminiscent of Spike Millligan's books, with new illustrations by Lisen Adbåge. A crazy, intergenerational household, a pack of ravenous tigers, a clueless burglar, a cushy jail, a swimming pool that's a flooded garage, grumpy owls in the mailbox - and those are just for starters. In the words of Pippi Longstocking creator Astrid Lindgren: "There’s a sublime sort of craziness to it that catches me unawares every time. Neither Soda Pop nor Mazarin nor Dartanyong speaks a single word of sense, but they will be my friends for life."
