OMG, I'm SURE I remember this book too. Were there lots of brothers and sisters?

I have my copy from the early 1970's but it's in a poor state now. It is ideal for a six or seven yr old to read.

The sequel is called "Happy Times in Noisy Village", and for some reason, this one is available new on Amazon UK (for a couple of pounds cheaper than the Book Depository) whereas the first one is only on BD. Judging by the cover, this is the one with the cherry tree in it. The new bedroom is in The Children Of NV.

This is the same book, for £3.89, with free delivery from the US by Book Depository. It's the version we have, and the translation is good. The Children of Noisy Village is the title it appears under in the US - "buller" means "noise" in Swedish, so Noisy Village is just a literal translation of the name).

Cheapest online price is amazon.com. Shipping is around £7 but would cost you £13.62 total. Much cheaper than the UK Amazon (Germany also marginally cheaper).

Yippeee!!! Thank you so much. I just knew this was the place to ask, off to order a copy

Sorry that should say "Bullerby Children". And I've just checked my copy and it definitely has the little girl's new bedroom and the bit about the cherry tree.

"All about the Bullberry Children" by Astrid Lindgren... I think

I can remember loving a book as a girl of about 8 or 9 or maybe younger. It was based in scandanavia and was about a little girl and her family. I think it was written in the first person but Im not sure. I can remember that the mother made a rag rug and a new bedroom for her and there was definately a baby in the family and Grandpa would not let the children pick cherries from the lowest branch of the cherry tree because those were reserved for the baby. Can anyone recall reading it and let me know title and author please?
