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 an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Top Customer Reviews
Pippi is very anarchic, and demonstrates the capabilities of 9-year-olds, albeit in an exaggerated way. She is kind, stands up top both adult and child bullies, and requires everyone to treat her like herself, rather than an example of a class.
This is a heroine for both boys and girls- my husband also loved these stories as a kid.
