Snipp Snapp and Snurr is the name of fictional triplets depicted in a series of children's books by author/illustrator Maj Lindman.[1] The triplets, all boys with blond hair, live in Sweden and have light hearted misadventures. The series of books were first created in the 1920s in Sweden and then printed in English in the United States from the 1930s. A 1936 New York Times review of the book Snipp Snapp Snurr and the Yellow Sled cited the Snipp, Snapp, Snurr series as "popular with the little children".[2]

The series of books continued until about 1960. Lindman also produced a series of books about triplet girls names Flicka Ricka and Dicka. Some of Lindman's stories were included in a series of compilations called "The Best of Children's Books".[3]
