The Lovereading4Kids comment
Generations of children have fallen in love with Pippi Longstocking. Readers are charmed by her sense of fun. This sumptuous slipcase edition of the hardback produced to celebrate the recent 50th anniversary of first publication has a sparkling new translation, and throughout there are the most stunning and wonderful collage pictures from award-winning illustrator, Lauren Child. This edition comes complete with some limited edition prints that are ideal for framing.
Lauren Child on the first time she read Pippi Longstocking:
I discovered Pippi when I was about 8 years old and found her completely inspiring.
Pippi Longstocking Gift Edition with Limited Edition Prints 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!
'Lauren Child's version of Astrid Lindgren's Pippi Longstocking is sublime' The Times
'Everyone will love this' The Bookseller
'Lauren Child helps to bring a modern feel to this classic and will enable another generation of readers to enjoy the exploits of this extraordinary little girl' Books for Keeps
