@LocalPaddyJay if you like children's books I’d highly recommend the Swedish famous author Astrid Lindgren! Her books are also available in English and many of them are available as pictured and/or chapter books. E.g. she’s the author of Pippi Longstocking.
@LocalPaddyJay I can only think of one more. Selma Lagerlöf, she has written a very popular book among Swedes called Nils Holgersson. It's about a guy flying on a goose over Sweden I personally love that story!
