Product Description

Pippi Longstocking is nine years old. She lives all by herself with a horse, a monkey, and a big suitcase full of gold coins. The grown-ups in the village try to make Pippi behave in ways that they think a little girl should, but Pippi has other ideas! As strong as an ox and as brave as a tiger, flame-haired Pippi thinks nothing of wrestling a circus strongman, dancing a polka with burglars or tugging a bull’s tail! In this wonderful pocket edition of Astrid Lindgren’s hilarious classic, illustrator Lauren Child brings fearless, feisty Pippi to brand new life in her own inimitable style.

“Lauren Child’s take on the classic Pippi Longstocking is gorgeous.” The Bookseller

“Akin to a marriage made in heaven.” Junior magazine

“Sublime.” Amanda Craig, The Times

    Pippi is so cool! She is a thing – searcher, and she always persuades Tommy and Annika to come to her house. If you read this book, you’d want to be just like Pippi! She is brave, likes jumping, and is adventurous, she also jumps down balconies, used to sail the seas, and rides her horse up to school!

    When I read the back of the book I thought she was like me but she wasn’t because I don’t enjoy telling tails to other people.

    My favourite part was when Pippi was on the tight rope. My favourite chapter was Pippi goes to the circus because I liked it when Pippi wrestled the strongest man in the world. My favourite character was Pippi because I think she’s funny.

    In the first chapter (Pippi comes to Villekula cottage) the first thing it said was, “At the end of a little Swedish town lay an old, overgrown orchard. In the orchard was a cottage, lied Pippi Longstocking.”

    I loved this book. I think this book is suitable for ages 6+.

    This book is really sweet. It is quite funny at times. The chapters are different stories about her in a way which I liked. The pictures are really nice too. I recommend it to girls aged 6-10.

    AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING. Even for me! I don’t read many books like this, as i read bigger books, but this, i have to admit, is a FAVOURITE.

    The humour and the simplicity is what makes it special. The way she can pick up policemen, dance with burglars and do multiflication tables :).

    I would recommend this to everybody, and i give it 5 stars.
