Flicka, Ricka, and Dicka are three sisters who live in Sweden. They have blonde hair and blue eyes and look very much alike. After the family moves to the country, the girls realize they need bicycles to ride to school. To earn money for bicycles, they decide to plant vegetables to sell at the market. They work hard choosing seeds, planting, weeding, and watering, and although at first they are shy at the noisy marketplace, soon they are selling too many vegetables to think about themselves! Originally published in the United States in 1968, Flicka, Ricka, Dicka Go to Market 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 immensely satisfying.
