Looking for Swedish beginner books

Hi,

I'm learning Swedish since a few weeks now (but only last week I started the courses here). In one month I'm going to Sweden and I would love to stop by a bookstore and buy a book that I might be able to read in a couple of months.

Can anyone help me to choose which book I should buy? Should I think of a children's book? It wouldn't bother me if I'd have to look up a lot of words, but I do want to understand some parts of it. Dutch is my native language, so sometimes words look or sound alike.

Thanks in advance!

I'm not sure of any books you can get from sweden, but i have a bilingual SWE/ENG book called 'den elaka systern' which is pretty good (from amazon)

I'm not trying to glorify myself, but I made a post that has links to many different websites for books and other things in Swedish. I hope this helps.

I recommend the children's books about Alfons Åberg by Gunilla Bergström.

I picked up Jo Nesbø's book Blod På Snö and Sven Nordqvist's book Findus flyttar ut in the Arlanda Airport. I read 'Blood on Snow' in English so I know the plot of the book. The Findus books are cute children's books. After I have learned progressively more Swedish, I pick up these books to see how much I can read.
