Notes

  • Astrid Lindgren was a popular author in her native Sweden and internationally. Following her death in 2002, the Swedish government established The Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award to 'honour her memory and promote children's and youth literature around the world ... The award, of five million Swedish crowns, is the world's largest for children's and youth literature, and the second-largest literature prize in the world.'
