* DaddysGirl: Astrid we herself a Daddy's girl to her father Samuel August, and quite a few of her characters are this as well.
** Pippi Longstocking is very close to her father Ephraim, a pirate captain. Of course, it helps that her mother died when she was baby, so she could only connect to her father. But there still is a very close connection between them.

* CounterpartComparison:
** ''Mio my son''. The book takes place in a fantasy world where a reluctant hero and his loyal sidekick ventures into a barren wasteland to overthrow an evil overlord who lives in a tower with a red glowing eye in it - and he is solely responsible for making his land a complete desert. The book was published in 1953, [[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings Coincidentally at the same time as a certain other novel, telling the story of a reluctant hero and his loyal sidekick, who ventures into a barren wasteland, to overthrow an evil overlord, living in a tower where a red glowing eye can be seen]]. ''And this is, by the way, completely coincidental!''. Also complete coincidental is the fact that Christopher Lee played major bad guys [[http://www.imdb.com/search/name?roles=tt0093543,tt0167260 in both movies]].
** "Mio min Mio" also has very many similarities with HarryPotter (an abused orphan boy is taken to a magical world, realizes that he has to defeat a terrible villain andbecomes the owner of an invisibility cloak).

** Madicken is the {{Tomboy}} older sister, who has developed a growing sense of social justice. So there is no wonder that she has a very special relationship with her socialist father, who happens to also be more lenient than her more uptight mother is.
** Ronja is very close to her mother Lovis too, but still, it is her relationship with her father Mattis, that is the heart of the story. They do have a big falling out, but they still really love each other and reconcile in the end.

* AuthorTract: And AuthorAvatar, at the same time: ''Pomperipossa in Monismania'' is about a writer of childrens' books who lives in a country that, while mostly a fairish place to live, has quirks in the tax system that lead to the marginal tax rate being 102% for Pomperipossa. It was written in reaction to Lindgren finding out that her marginal tax rate was... 102%, as an unintended consequence of the combination of self-employment and a high income. SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped may apply; the story lead to a fairly intensive debate regarding taxes, and may even have been a decisive factor in the Social Democrats losing the elections to the Riksdag that year, for the first time in 40 years.
