She had already written the script for it, but Lindgren did not think the script was good enough and turned it down. While they may have sentimental value, bibles passed down through the family are not often worth a lot of money.

Truth be told, I actually never did manage to read the prequel to Astrid Lindgren's Lotta på Bråkmakargatan as a child (which I of course read in German translation, and indeed Lotta zieht um was one of my favourite books from around the time I was seven years old and had just learned to read) as somehow my mother was not aware that there indeed was a prequel, that there was a book titled Die Kinder aus der Krachmacherstraße (the German translation, the German language version of Barnen på Bråkmakargatan, which takes place about a year before the events portrayed during Lotta's very bad and terrible, temper tantrum day as related in Lotta zieht um, and Die Kinder aus der Krachmacherstraße features a series of episodic anecdotes of Swedish family life, of the Nyman family's and especially of course their three young children's games, fun and at times mischief, narrated by the middle child, the at that time six year old Mia-Maria).

However, even with my criticisms (and my two star ranking), Die Kinder aus der Krachmacherstraße, and by extension of course also the Swedish original (as well as other translations) are still to be recommended. One day, when Lotta has an argument with her mother because she does not want to wear her scratchy sweater, she even moves into Aunt Berg's attic.

And for two, there are also simply far far too many often unconnected episodes and anecdotes stuffed into a relatively short novel, with the result that there really is not all that much of a connecting thread holding the episodes of Die Kinder aus der Krachmacherstraße together, leaving at least me with more than a bit of a feeling of disconnection (of constantly being thrown out of the narrative, out of Mia-Maria's descriptions and explanations because she moves from one episode to another at breakneck speed, with the reader never really getting a chance to fully immerse himself or herself into the story, into Jonas', Mia-Maria's and Lotta's lives).

Gabriele Cromme adds that the picture book contradicts the traditional understanding of the roles of girls and boys.Gabriele Cromme: Astrid Lindgren und die Autarkie der Weiblichkeit: literarische Darstellung von Frauen und Mädchen in ihrem Gesamtwerk, ISBN 9783860644089, Kovač, 1996, P. She praises Lotta’s healthy self-confidence and her 'I can do anything' attitude, which makes Lotta far ahead of the common image of girls of the late 1950s. But she feels lonely in the attic, so she decides to come back home with her father, when he visits her.
