A new book from the author of Pippi Longstocking
Barbara has a secret friend who lives in the garden. It’s her twin sister, Lalla-Lee, and Barbara doesn’t have to share her with her papa or mama or brother. What’s even better is that Lalla-Lee calls Barbara her “Most Beloved Sister.” Together, the girls bravely ride their horses through the Great Horrible Forest, where the nasty Frights live, to visit the Kind Ones in the meadow. The Kind Ones always give them cookies and caramels. And best of all, Barbara and Lalla-Lee go to the Most Beautiful Valley in the World, where the trees and the flowers sing. At the end of this particular adventure, Barbara knows that she must say goodbye to Lalla-Lee for the final time. But when she arrives home, there is a wonderful surprise waiting for her.
Astrid Lindgren’s lovely story about imagination and friendship is accompanied by Hans Arnold’s bright and sweet illustrations.

"Now I'll tell you a secret that no one knows except me: I have a twin sister." If this sounds like an imaginary friend story, it is! But Most Beloved Sister, written in 1949 by Pippi creator Astrid Lindgren and illustrated in the 1970s by Hans Arnold, is as enchanting an imaginary-friend story as they come. Arnold's gorgeous, color-drenched, child-friendly illustrations depict a lush, whimsical world, crawling with horn-snouted, bug-eyed creatures, hidden palaces, and benign dwarves. Barbara and her twin sister, Lalla-Lee, have many splendid adventures, speak a special language (the rosebush where Lalla-Lee lives is called Salikon), frolic in the Golden Hall, ride through the Great Horrible Forest... But what happens to Lalla-Lee when a new poodle puppy comes to live with Barbara's family? This original picture-book classic is a longish read-aloud, but the lively story of the lonely girl and her glorious flights of fancy is sure to captivate young readers. Highly recommended!
