Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 1-3-Written and illustrated by the original series creators, these 1950s-era comics have been translated into English for the first time. Although they may be a tough sell to today's audiences, the collection will pair nicely with the novels and might serve to generate some interest in the character. Over the course of 12 short stories, readers get to know the quirky world of Pippi Longstocking. The opening selection tells the story of when Pippi; her horse; and monkey sidekick, Mr. Nillson, moved in next to everyday kids Tommy and Annika. Everything about Pippi is unusual, from her super strength to her curious lack of parents. The following comics explore different aspects of her personality, from defeating the strongest man in the world to getting shipwrecked on purpose. Pippi's dialogue is simple, brief, and full of quips. The basic humor and kids vs. adults situations have the potential to draw in readers. The artwork is bold, with heavy doses of primary colors. The layouts are easy to follow, with the exception of an oddly placed caption box here and there. It's great to see these comics available to American audiences. Wide appeal will be elusive, but fans of Pippi and classic comics will be pleased.-Travis Jonker, Wayland Union Schools, MIα(c) Copyright 2011.

From Booklist

Lindgren’s Pippi Longstocking books have been published in many languages since the 1940s and adapted into television and movies in Europe and the U.S. Yet the comic books, first published in 1957, have never been translated into English until now. In this volume, Pippi, the strongest little girl in the world, has moved into the Villa Villekulla in a small Scandinavian village, where she lives with a monkey, Mr. Nilsson, and her horse but no adults. Pippi makes friends with next-door neighbors Tommy and Annika, but she doesn’t get along with most adults, especially any who behave unkindly toward children and animals. The comics reimagine Lindgren’s famous novels with bright, colorful art by Vang Nyman. The episodic stories are told entirely in the word balloons. The minimal backgrounds and simple art make the story easy for younger readers to understand. This book will appeal to young Pippi Longstocking fans as well as adults who grew up reading her books. Grades 2-4. --Kat Kan

This item was bought new and met descriptions. This is a direct translated version of the Pippi-book I read as a child (I am Swedish) in the 70's and has the format of cartoon squares with the original art work. I love it and consider this to be the genuine and original Pippi-book for young children, and I am not happy with the new vamped up, international version of Pippi I have seen pop up elsewhere. I am happy to be able share this traditional version with my American niece who knows no Swedish.

We love Pippi anyway, and have read the long version with illustrations by Lauren Child many times: Pippi Longstocking Pippi Longstocking Pippi Longstocking.

This graphic novel of Pippi captures the exuberance of the story and is perfect for even very young children to read independently. Funny, funny illustrations.

I called my daughter Pippi Longstocking and she got a kick out of it. I ordered this book and it was hilarious for us both. Pippy is the strongest person in the world and does things her own way. She is independent and witty and very funny. I enjoyed the art work as well. Good clean fun.
