  • Synopsis

    The story of the Little Brother and Karlsson-on-the-Roof tells about the little boy who meets the World’s Best Karlsson who is always gay and eager to eat and to have fun. The Little Brother’s family and friends think that Karlsson is nothing but an imaginary friend, but all at once they meet him in the flesh.
    * * *
    On a perfectly ordinary street in Stockholm, in a perfectly ordinary house, lives a perfectly ordinary family called Svantesson. There is a perfectly ordinary father and a perfectly ordinary mother and three perfectly ordinary children: Bettan, Bosse, and their Little Brother.
    There is only one person in the entire house who is not ordinary, and that is Karlsson-on-the-Roof. He lives on the roof, Karlsson does. This alone is out of the ordinary. Things may be different in other parts of the world, but in Stockholm people hardly ever live in a little house of their own on top of a roof. But Karlsson does.
