'Lauren Child's ... version of Astrid Lindgren's Pippi Longstocking is sublime.' Amanda Craig, The Times '[Lauren Child's] an inspired choice to hook a new generation of children on Sweden's greatest literary export.' Susanna Forest, Telegraph Review 'Some word and picture partnerships are akin to a marriage made in heaven. First there was EH Shepard and AA Milne, then Quentin Blake and Roald Dahl-now Lauren Child and Astrid Lindgren. If ever there was an illustrator born to understand the psyche and well-loved quirkiness of Pippi Longstocking and infuse it with a 21st-century edge, then Child is that artist.' Junior 'There's no stopping Lauren Child as she brings her own inimitable style to illustrate Pippi Longstocking ... Everyone will love this.' The Bookseller 'Lauren Child ... is the perfect choice to illustrate this handsome, large format edition of Pippi ... her unmistakable illustrative style helps to bring a modern feel to the book and will enable another generation of readers to enjoy the exploits of this extraordinary little girl.'
