STOCKHOLM (AP) - The former home of children’s book writer Astrid Lindgren, known internationally for the “Pippi Longstocking” series, is being opened to the public - except for children.

Starting Saturday, the Astrid Lindgren Society is offering guided tours of the Stockholm apartment where Lindgren lived and worked until her death in 2002.

“This is where timeless classics such as ‘Pippi Longstocking,’ countless letters and articles were written,” the society says.

Lindgren’s family has preserved the apartment as it was when she lived there.

Tours must be booked in advance on the society’s web page and only 12 people will be allowed at a time.

In a move that appeared at odds with Lindgren’s respect and love for children, the society said visitors must be 15 or older.
