Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Flicka, Ricka, and Dicka are three sisters who live in Sweden. They have blonde hair and blue eyes and look very much alike. After the family moves to the country, the girls realize they need bicycles to ride to school. To earn money for bicycles, they decide to plant vegetables to sell at the market. They work hard choosing seeds, planting, weeding, and watering, and although at first they are shy at the noisy marketplace, soon they are selling too many vegetables to think about themselves! Originally published in the United States in 1968, Flicka, Ricka, Dicka Go to Market was one of a series of treasured books created by Swedish author-artist Maj Lindman (1886-1972). She also wrote and illustrated stories about three little Swedish boys, Snipp, Snapp, and Snurr. Today's young readers will find the warm, wholesome stories of these busy, independent children immensely satisfying.

Review:

"From a Swedish picture book series about three blonde triplets (originally published in the U.S. in the 1950s), this redesigned edition centers on the girls as they grow a garden in hopes of selling vegetables so they can buy bicycles. The girls learn the art of patience — first sending away for the seeds ('Oh,' Ricka says, 'even the outsides of the envelopes are beautiful'), then waiting for them to sprout. When it's finally time to harvest, a farmer offers the girls the use of his horse and cart if they will also sell his flowers at the market. The triplets, who wear matching outfits that alternate between blue and orange stripes and solids, appear in tidy compositions — walking in line under an orange umbrella in a rainstorm, they resemble a troika of Morton Salt Girls. Lindman's designs point to a bygone era of friendly, pipe-smoking neighbors and delayed gratification, offering a refreshing change of pace for the Farmville generation. Ages 5 — 8."
