They helped the maids and farmhands with the everyday work on the farm. It was in the kitchen of one of the farmhands that Astrid Lindgren heard fairytales and stories which ignited her love of books.
  2. 2.  She finished the school and took a job with a local newspaper in Vimmerby. Then she moved to Stockholm to learn to become a typist and stenographer. In 1931 she married her boss, Sture Lindgren (1898-1952). The family moved in 1941 to an apartment on Dalagatan, with a view over Vasaparken, where Astrid lived until her death.

The award-winning fantasy novel The Hobbit—about the small, furry-footed Bilbo Baggins and his adventures—was published in 1937 and was regarded as a children’s book, though Tolkien would state the book wasn’t originally intended for children. He also created more than 100 drawings to support the narrative.
  20. 20. Over the years, while working on scholarly publications, Tolkien developed the work that would come to be regarded as his masterpiece— the Lord of the Rings series, partially inspired by ancient European myths, with its own sets of maps, lore and languages.
  21. 21. A book, I think, is very like A little golden door That takes me into places Where I’ve never been before. It leads me into fairyland Or countries strange and far. And, best of all, the golden door Always stands ajar.
