The Lovereading4Kids comment
Not to be missed, this is a newly translated edition of this classic story about a wonderful little girl. Pippi Longstocking is nine years old; she lives alone with a horse and a monkey and spends her days having wonderfully imaginative adventures with her friends. Once hooked on Pippi, readers will find she’s a character that will never be forgotten. Perfect for children just setting out on the wonderful experience of reading alone.
Be sure to check out the lovely hardback gift edition of this title from Oxford University Press.
The Good Book Guide Review. The first Pippi Longstocking story was published in Sweden in 1945, making its indomitable heroine seventy this year! Living on her own in a cottage with a horse and monkey, nine-year-old Pippi still appeals to today’s children with her independent tomboy ways, comic adventures and, perhaps most enviable to some children, her freedom to do exactly as she pleases. (Ages 7-11)

Pippi Longstocking by Astrid Lindgren
Pippi is nine years old, lives alone with a horse and a money, and does exactly as she pleases. She has no mother and her father is king of a cannibal island. She gets up when she likes, never goes to school, talks a great deal, keeps a chest of gold coins under the bed, and is unexpectedly strong. This book contains her marvellous escapades.
