The Lovereading4Kids comment
It might be 70 years since the first Pippi Longstocking story was published, but they haven’t dated in the slightest, in fact Lindgren’s stories of the nine year old free spirit living completely free of adult supervision are if anything even more appealing to today’s young readers. Pippi is bold, confident and can do whatever she wants, but she’s kind-hearted too: no wonder she’s remained such a favourite with children. There are three stories in this chunky volume, each new story and chapter introduced with a typically lively Tony Ross illustration and is a great way to introduce Pippi to the next generation of fans.
The Best of Pippi Longstocking (3 Books in 1) by Astrid Lindgren
This collection of Pippi stories will introduce her adventurous spirit to a whole new generation of readers.
Pippi Longstocking is nine years old and lives all by herself with a horse, a monkey, a suitcase full of gold, and no grown-ups to tell her what to do. She's wild and funny and her crazy ideas are always getting her into trouble! In this single-volume edition of three favourite books, Pippi performs at the circus, is reunited with her long-lost father, and takes her friends Tommy and Annika on a trip to the Canny Canny Islands. She also finds a squeazle, gives a shark a good telling-off, and turns 43 somersaults in the air before breakfast! Everything's fun with Pippi around!
This edition is illustrated throughout with black and white line drawings by best-selling artist Tony Ross.
'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 . . . He laughed so much that he fell off the bed!’ Amazon reviewer
'Funny, charismatic Pippi is the person every small child wants to be ... Magical Stuff.' - Frances Perkins, Dorset Society
'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, The Guardian
