J.H. Sweet, author of The Fairy Chronicles
There is heaps of wisdom to be learned from Pippi and not only for children but also for their parents too !
A wonderful recipe for happiness, fun and kindness.
She is now over the moon that she has it again,the fact out of all her books this was the one she chose to take with her and she wanted it replaced speaks for it's self so I would recomend it to anyone
I hadn't forgotten about the author who through her stories gave children power, freedom and both a voice and choice, and always the right to their own lives; but it was lovely to be reacquainted. I've read this book to myself and out loud and it's timeless.
Astrid and Pippi made it easier to be me, to be different. Pippi doesn't go to school, I didn't like school. She spins tall tales, I sometimes got lost in the ones I told. She lived on her own, I often wished I could. Visiting Pippi's world made it easier to grow roots and ground myself. Pippi still has the power to inspire and touch the hearts of children and big kids.
Pippi's sense of humour is one of her strengths:
(Excerpt: "Are you the girl who's moved into Villekulla Cottage?" asked one of the policemen.
"Not me!"said Pippi. I'm her very small aunt who lives on the third floor at the other end of the town." She only said this because she wanted to have a bit of fun with the policemen. But they didn't think it was the least bit funny. They told her not to try to be so clever. And then they explained that kind people in the town had arranged for her to be placed in a Children's Home.
"I'm already in a Children's Home," said Pippi.
"What's that? Is it already arranged?" asked the policemen. "Which Children's Home is that?"
"This one," said Pippi proudly. "I'm a child, and this is my home. There aren't any grown-ups living here, so I think that makes it a Children's Home.")
I had to grow up to realise how much Astrid and Pippi actually gave me. I'm happy to say I've become like a child again.
