The Best of Pippi Longstocking by Astrid Lindgren
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 these three favourite stories, 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!
'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
'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
'One of the Greatest Female Characters Ever Created ... This is terrific reading for all ages both girls and boys.' - Amazon Reviewer
