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

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."
