The Lovereading4Kids comment
Generations of children have fallen in love with Pippi Longstocking. Readers are charmed by her sense of fun. This sumptuous gift edition produced to celebrate the recent 50th anniversary of first publication but also the centenary of Oxford Children’s Books has a sparkling new translation, and throughout there are the most stunning and wonderful collage pictures from award-winning illustrator, Lauren Child.
Lauren Child on Pippi Longstocking:
Lauren vividly remembers the first time she read Pippi Longstocking:
I discovered Pippi when I was about 8 years old and found her completely inspiring.
Pippi Longstocking, Hard Back Gift Edition by Astrid Lindgren
Pippi Longstocking is nine years old. She lives in Villa Villekula with a horse, a monkey and a big suitcase full of gold coins. She spends her days arranging adventures to enjoy with her neighbours, Tommy and Annika, or entertaining everyone she meets with her outrageous stories. Pippi thinks nothing of wrestling a circus strongman, dancing a polka with burglars, or tugging a bull’s tail!
'It should be on the national curriculum for 8-year olds instead of the tripe currently recommended; It should be on every child's bookshelf.' Amanda Craig, The Times
