Flicka, Ricka, and Dicka were three little girls who lived in Sweden. They had blue eyes and yellow curls, and they looked very much alike.
One time, while their aunt and uncle were away, Flicka, Ricka, and Dicka offered to take care of Mitzi, the cat. The girls got fresh milk and fish for Mitzi and they played with her all day. Then Mitzi disappeared!
Flicka, Ricka, and Dicka searched everywhere—the streets and even the rooftops. Mitzi stayed hidden—but that was because she had a big surprise.
Originally published in the United States in 1941, Flicka, Ricka, Dicka and the Three Kittens 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 quaint, but immensely satisfying.
