Product description

Amazon Review

Pippi is an irrepressible, irreverent and irrefutably delightful girl who lives alone (with a monkey) in her wacky house, Villa Villekulla. When she's not dancing with the burglars who were just trying to rob her house, she's attempting to learn the "pluttification" tables at school, fighting Adolf, the strongest man in the world at the circus or playing tag with police officers. Pippi's high-spirited, good-natured antics cause as much trouble as fun, but a more generous child you won't find anywhere.

Astrid Lindgren has created a unique and lovable character, inspiring generations of children to want to be Pippi. More than anything, Pippi makes reading a pleasure; no child will welcome the end of the book, and many will return to Pippi Longstocking again and again. Simply put, Pippi is irresistible. (Ages 9 to 12) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

Generations of children have grown up loving these wonderful stories about the invincible girl with the unforgettable name. (Manchester Evening News)

I read this book to my son (aged just 5). He laughed so much that he fell off the bed! (Amazon reviewer)

I don't know who is enjoying this book more - my six year old son or myself. Pippi is a feisty character with a touch of the superhero about her and is as appealing to me now as she was when I was a kid. (Amazon reviewer)

Funny, charismatic Pippi is the person every small child wants to be . . . Magical Stuff. (Frances Perkins)

Pippi is in the great tradition of children's protagonists who subvert the adult world, whether by questioning it, like Alice, or simply throwing it into chaos, like Dr Seuss's Cat in the Hat. (Sean French, Dorset Society)

She's the greatest thing since sliced bread and twice as perky. For a fabulous romp through the increasingly ridiculous, I more than recommend this quirky spunky fan-freakin'-tastic book. It hasn't aged a jot. (Amazon reviewer)

'She just never does things as expected. And that's why we love her.' (Laura Tscherry, The Guardian)

I adored this book when I was a child. (Cressida Cowell, The Week)

I bought this book after searching for a book for my 9 year old and I to read together,after reading it on night 1 she took it to bed with her and has found the first book she has truly been captivated by. She reads and reads at night until her eyes hurt or she falls asleep, when I say to her shall we read it together she says "no, only I'm allowed to read Pippi" but then when she reaches the next chapter I hear laughter followed "Mum, you'll never guess what the next chapters called!!" A truly lovely story for girls (and boys I would imagine) to read.

Have just read this collection of short stories to my six-year-old daughter. Pippi Longstocking is an eccentric girl with a pet monkey, a horse and a collection of gold coins who buys a cottage in a quiet little village (in 1940s Sweden), moves in, and proceeds to live life exactly as she pleases. This is my daughter's ultimate fantasy!

She makes friends with neighbouring children Tommy and Annika, and as the local adults wring their hands about a child living on her own, Pippi, with extreme good nature and playfulness, has fun with anybody who tries to control her, from bullies to burglars to policemen to schoolteachers to a very irate circus ringmaster.

The stories are still fresh and have very little period detail that needs explaining. They are very lively, and my daughter has requested the other two books in the series.
