Product Description

Review

'Lauren Child's . . . version of Astrid Lindgren's Pippi Longstocking is sublime.' (Amanda Craig, The Times)

'[Lauren Child's] an inspired choice to hook a new generation of children on Sweden's greatest literary export.' (Susanna Forest, Telegraph Review)

'Some word and picture partnerships are akin to a marriage made in heaven. First there was EH Shepard and AA Milne, then Quentin Blake and Roald Dahl-now Lauren Child and Astrid Lindgren. If ever there was an illustrator born to understand the psyche and well-loved quirkiness of Pippi Longstocking and infuse it with a 21st-century edge, then Child is that artist.' (Junior)

'There's no stopping Lauren Child as she brings her own inimitable style to illustrate Pippi Longstocking . . . Everyone will love this.' (The Bookseller)

'Lauren Child . . . is the perfect choice to illustrate this handsome, large format edition of Pippi . . . her unmistakable illustrative style helps to bring a modern feel to the book and will enable another generation of readers to enjoy the exploits of this extraordinary little girl.' (Books for Keeps)

Book Description

A true children's classic has been given a modern makeover.
