Pippi is an incredible character and has a rather strange way of thinking.
Astrid Lingren has obviously thought of someone she knows, changed her name, and made her more peculiar than anyone else imaginable. She has done things differently from what I expected e.g. the two children who Pippi makes friends with aren't really puzzled by how odd she is.
My favourite bit in the book is when Tommy, Anika (Pippi's friends) and Pippi herself, go Turnupstuffing and her friends are amzingly lucky and find a necklace and a notepad, while Pippi finds a cotton reel and a rusty old ake tin! It made me laugh when she was so pleased with them!
You have to read it!
