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 winter day, the girls made a big snowball. It rolled down the hill and stopped on old Mr. Fogel's front walk. That snowball made Mr. Fogel cross, but he cheered up when the three little girls came to say they were sorry.
And Flicka, Ricka, and Dicka soon found they had a wonderful new friend.
Originally published in the United States in 1942, Flicka, Ricka, Dicka and Their New Friend 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.
