Madicken is a fictional character created by the Swedish author Astrid Lindgren. Madicken appeared in 6 books, 2 films — Du är inte klok Madicken (1979) (You're out of your mind, Maggie) and Madicken på Junibacken (1980) (Meg of June Hill) — and a TV series (1979).[1]

Du är inte klok Madicken is about a 7-year-old middle class girl, during World War I. The follow-up movie Madicken på Junibacken from 1980 is edited from various episodes of the TV production "Madicken" which screened in 1980. However, the events of the first film are set after the second film.

Her full name is Margareta Engström, but the only time anyone uses it is when admonishing her. Her mother is a housewife - they have a maid/nanny named Alva who does the work around the house—and her father is the editor-in-chief of the local newspaper.

Valborg och jag gör en snabbdykning i Astrid Lindgrens valborgssekvens från filmen ”Du är inte klok Madicken” (1979): Historien börjar med att den välnärda och rika flickan (Madicken) får något så ovanligt som ett par sandaler. Stor glädje som byts ...
