Pippi Longstocking in the South Seas Synopsis

Pippi Longstocking is one of the most popular children's characters of all time and is still much loved by millions of children today.

This anniversary edition of Pippi Longstocking in the South Seas will introduce Pippi and her adventurous spirit to a whole new generation of readers. Nine year old Pippi is an unusual and unpredictable character, she lives alone with a monkey, a horse, and no rules whatsoever! Every day is a crazy adventure with Pippi, but what else would you expect from the daughter of a swashbuckling pirate captain?! In this collection of stories Pippi and her friends, Tommy and Annika, set sail for the Canny Canny Islands, where Pippi's father is king. They explore secret caves, and play marbles with real pearls. Luckily the pirates and sharks they meet are no match for Pippi Longstocking!

Why not hold your own Pippi Longstocking party? There's a fantastic party kit to download here with ideas for making party bunting, fancy dress and games to play!

And Pippi fans will love this activity pack with colouring in, a Pippi quiz and puzzles - and guidance on how to help children get the most out of the Pippi books.
