Pippi in the South Seas by Astrid Lindgren
Have you ever given a shark a good telling-off? Pippi has! Do you know what a squeazle is? Pippi does! Can you carry your Dad on your shoulders? Pippi can! Pippi, Tommy, and Annika are off on their greatest adventure yet - a trip to the Canny Canny Islands, where Pippi's father is king. They explore secret caves, play marbles with real pearls and luckily the pirates and sharks they meet are no match for Pippi!
'Generations of children have grown up loving these wonderful stories about the invincible girl with the unforgettable name.' - Manchester Evening News
'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
