Product description

This beautiful edition of the children’s classic Pippi Longstocking is illustrated throughout with wonderful collage pictures from the award-winning Lauren Child. The contemporary design, imaginative layout of the text, and stunning illustrations from Lauren Child all add up to a perfect gift purchase.

When the book published in hardback, it gathered many wonderful reviews, including this one from Books for Keeps: ‘Lauren Child is the perfect choice to illustrate this handsome, large format edition of Pippi . . . her unmistakeable illustrative style helps to bring a modern feel to the book.’

Pippi lives in Villa Villekulla with a horse, a monkey, and a big suitcase full of gold coins. The grown-ups in her village try to make Pippi behave in ways that they think a little girl should, but Pippi has other ideas. She would much rather spend her days arranging wild, exciting adventures to enjoy with her neighbours, Tommy and Annika, or entertaining everyone she meets with her outrageous stories. Pippi thinks nothing of wrestling a circus strongman, dancing a polka with burglars, or tugging a bull’s tail and her wildly unconventional lifestyle is matched by Lauren’s free-spirited illustrations.

    AWESOME This is an brilliant story, or should I say collection of stories. I would recommend this book to someone who is aged 7- 11 and quiet girly. I wish I was Pippi. I would stay up really late. The Lauren Child illustrations were awesome,(they were what made me buy the book in the first place).I also liked Karlson flies again.

    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 so good and I like all of Pippi’s funny fibs. The most funny thing is she actually admits her stories are not true!!!!!

    I would rate this book 10/10 because it is well explained and quite amusing. I really like how Pippi is the sort of girl who acts before she thinks sometimes and is very adventerous
