I loved Pippi Långstrumpf because I could dream about being as kick-ass and strong as her; I loved Karlsson på taket because I secretly hoped to one day also find a flying anarchist on our roof; but I love Vi på Saltkråkan because it has blended so perfectly into my own memories of summer holidays, even though that was on Schiermonnikoog instead of Saltkråkan.
