Personally, I prefer Almqvist's “Barna Hedenhös” stories, equally flippant tales about a Stone Age family. There is also his classical piece of World War II propaganda, commissioned by the Swedish government, “En svensk tiger”. (I didn't know it was made by the same guy until I checked it up today!)
As for the shipwreck story, it also exists in an English-language version called “The Vasa Saga”. Not my favorite Almquist product, and therefore only two stars!
