Only an Excerpt of Pippi Longstocking
on March 24, 2010
My 8 year old had to read Pippi Longstocking for school. She loved it, so I decided to buy other books about Pippi Longstocking. I bought Pippi's Extraordinary Ordinary Day and Pippi Goes to the Circus from Amazon. Both of these books, however, have the same message at the top of the copyright page: "The text to this book has been excerpted, with Astrid Lindgren's assistance, from two chapters in Pippi Longstocking." The two excerpted books are much better illustrated than the original Pippi Longstocking, but after having already read the original all my daughter did was quickly look through these books at the pictures and never touched them again. The bottom line is that these books are not worth having if you have the original book, Pippi Longstocking.
