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.
When they decided to bake a surprise cake for their mother's birthday, their friend Aunt Betty helped them. She told them how to make Mother's favorite cake, and then she watched them put it in the oven.
"Remember—your cake should bake just half an hour," Aunt Betty told the girls as she went out.
What happened after that surprised everyone!
Originally published in the United States in 1955, Flicka, Ricka, Dicka Bake a Cake 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.
