Illustrated by Eva Stålsjö
Shipwrecked as a baby, Goldie goes to live in an orphanage where her golden hair gets her into trouble. Then a new girl called Lotta arrives and Goldie starts to have more fun, until the time comes for them to be auctioned off to the highest bidder. What will happen to the two friends now that Lotta is going away with a stern older couple, while Goldie is to go with a kindly farmer?
The lively illustrations bring out the warmth and vivacity of Goldie. This story is sure to enchant children ages 6-8
