about

 The beloved story of a spunky young girl and her hilarious escapades.
 
Tommy and his sister Annika have a new neighbor, and her name is Pippi Longstocking. She has crazy red pigtails, no parents to tell her what to do, a horse that lives on her porch, and a pet monkey named Mr. Nilsson. Whether Pippi’s scrubbing her floors, doing arithmetic, or stirring things up at a fancy tea party, her flair for the outrageous always seems to lead to another adventure. 

"A rollicking story." —The Horn Book

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A cute classic This is more a collection of related short stories than it is a novel. The stories are outrageous fun, but Pippi can get annoying at times -- fair warning.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as great as I hoped My Kids loved it, but I didn't enjoy reading it. I like a good light-hearted story, but Pippi was just too much nonsense for me. I much prefer Lindgrens "Noisy Village" books.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Friend I Never Had If you like adventurous humor books this one is definately a book that cannot be passed by. Tommy and Annika were always hoping for a friend in that old empty house down the street, when one day they saw a light on. here was someone in there. It was Pippi Longstocking! The next day, Tommy and Annika couldn't pass up the opportunity to go meet their soon to be friend. I would tell you more but I think that would spoil the surprise. Go read the book, and other books in the series, and invite yourself on all the outings that Pippi and her friends go on. So, get out to a book store near you and buy a copy of this five star amazing book. I know you'll like it!

From Our Editors

With her haywire red pigtails and her happy-go-lucky approach to life, Pippi Longstocking has become one of those cherished characters who are highly symbolic to kids. Living as she does in a shoddy little house with no adults to dictate rules to her and a horse and a monkey for company, Pippi has an enviable life. The appeal of Astrid Lindgren’s creation is in her complete independence, as well as her freedom from rules and conventions. Her house may be dilapidated and strange, but it’s hers. Just so, Pippi’s zingy attitude and nose for adventure makes her an inspiring heroine for other nine-year-olds who have the desire — if not the means — to live on the edge!  

Editorial Reviews

"A rollicking story of Pippi who lives without any grownups in a little house at the edge of the village. The matter-of-fact way in which her absurd adventures are related is one of the chief charms of this story."
