Publishers Description Welcome to Noisy Village Well, it's not "really quite what it sounds. Lisa, who tells the story, lives on Middle Farm with her parents and two brothers, Karl and Bill. Britta and Anna live at North Farm and Olaf and Kerstin live at South Farm. It is because the houses are right next door to each other in a clump as they liked to do these things in rural Sweden years ago, and because the children make so much racket that the farmhouses came to be so honestly and happily named. A large linden tree grows between Middle and South Farms and so the boys in the two houses visit each other by climbing through the branches--even the girls do it sometimes, like the night they all waited for Olaf to go to sleep so that they could pull out his loose tooth without his knowing it That is only one of the many escapades designed to make readers young and old wish they could step right into the pages of this little book. Join the fun in this companion volume to "The Children of Noisy Village (published by Viking Penguin).

Reviews - What do customers think about Happy Times in Noisy Village?
A good addition to a family library Jan 14, 2008
An entertaining story of childhood in early 20th century Sweden. Written from a seven-year old girl's point of view, it chronicles simple, everyday life in rural Sweden. Adults are minor characters, with the main characters being three boys and three girls from the three farms that cluster into "Noisy Village". This book is suitable for both boys and girls and is in the same vein as Hilda van Stockum's Mitchell series and Bantry Bay series, though the books are much shorter. Also similar to the Little House books. A good addition to a family library. Good for read-aloud or personal reading.
Wholesome Charlotte Mason Books Jul 9, 2007
These books are great for read-alouds or for early readers. My daughter LOVES the characters and tries to emulate them. Wholesome characters! Reminds me of Rebecca of Sunnybrook or Anne of Green Gables, but for younger ages!! The Children of Noisy Village is wonderful too!

Fantasy Village Jan 13, 2004
I received this book from my parents for my 11th birthday (many years ago) and this past Christmas I bought one for my 7 year old son, whose favorite characters are Ninja Turtles and Pokemons. We have read this book together during quiet Christmas time and now he doesn't go to sleep without reading at least one chapter from it. He says: "It makes me feel warm inside, mommy, and I feel happy." The book shows how simple things in life (baking cookies, going to school, pulling tooth out...) can become extraordinary adventures for children. Moreover, each and every child can relate to the children from Noisy Village. Astrid Lindgren is a real writing magician. I cannot wait for her other books to be published.
Noisy Village is the Place to be! Aug 9, 1999
The series of "Noisy Village" was the X'mas gift given to me 20 years ago. My dad picked up the books and signed with "To My Daughter of Noisy Village ... From Father in Quiet Village". I enjoyed all the stories. I enjoyed the beautiful illustrations too. Someday, I thought, I'd go visit this tiny village of three houses and a bunch of kids with my mom, dad and my baby sister. 20 years has passed and my parents still keep the books for me in their house - I wanted to take the books when I moved but my new place did not have any extra room - and everytime I come visit my parents I never forget to visit the Noisy Village too.
