Katthult, in Lönneberga, in Småland, is where Emil and his little sister Ida live with their father Anton, their mother Alma, the farmhand Alfred and the maid Lina. Emil is a sweet little boy who likes to help out, but his helpfulness often turns into mischief. He’s then sent to the woodshed, where he sits quietly and carves his wood figures until someone lets him out.
