Astrid Lindgren (14 November 190728 January 2002) was a Swedish author and screenwriter.

Lindgren said that the works of J.R.R. Tolkien had a great impact on her work[1] and she wrote three children's books in the genre of fantasy: Mio min Mio (1954; Mio, my Son), Bröderna Lejonhjärta (1973; The Brothers Lionheart), and Ronja Rövardotter (1981; Ronia the Robber's Daughter). The first two novels might be caracterized as stories of fantasy reminiscent of The Hobbit, where the heroes return home after a perilous adventure. And the latter, Ronia the Robber's Daughter, has been described as a work reminding of the genre "High fantay".[2]
