Product Description

From Amazon

Pippi is an irrepressible, irreverent, and irrefutably delightful girl who lives alone (with a monkey) in her wacky house, Villa Villekulla. When she's not dancing with the burglars who were just trying to rob her house, she's attempting to learn the "pluttification" tables at school; fighting Adolf, the strongest man in the world at the circus; or playing tag with police officers. Pippi's high-spirited, good-natured hijinks cause as much trouble as fun, but a more generous child you won't find anywhere.

Astrid Lindgren has created a unique and lovable character, inspiring generations of children to want to be Pippi. More than anything, Pippi makes reading a pleasure; no child will welcome the end of the book, and many will return to Pippi Longstocking again and again. Simply put, Pippi is irresistible. (Ages 9 to 12) --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Format: Paperback
This has to be one of the most memorable books from my childhood. Therefore I had to get it for my six-year-old daughter. And I'm so glad I didn't put it off any longer. This one book helped launch her into a world of reading by herself, when previously she didn't have much interest in books. Sometimes she could be seen giggling to herself, in the thick of it. She would go around the house holding this book, randomly reading out passages that struck her fancy, to me and her father. And then it reminded me why I loved it so much. It introduces themes to children that they find so absurd and thrilling! Imagine being without any parents, and thus any rules --why, it's every child's dream! But the author also balances it out with the consequences. For example, since Pippi, the main character, has no parents, she also has to do all the cooking and housework, which the author describes in hilarious detail. Pippi has quite a lot of responsibility on her young shoulders, which is perhaps one of the greatest morals of the story.

I can't believe no readers have sent reviews of this book to this site, when reading it just once will not fail to leave anyone grinning, and reading it more is even better. I'm a college sophomore, and I freely admit that I love this book! No kid should be without it. Don't watch the movie - read the original, and laugh until the tears run down your cheeks!

Reading Pippi to my daughter was my first time ever reading/coming across the story. I don't like that Pippi is irreverent and shows a lack of respect to her elders and authority figures (teachers, police officers, friends' parents). It made for some good discussions about proper behaviour, though, so overall we have loved Pippi. So many of her stunts and the visual imagery has made my nearly 5-year-old giggle out loud.
