About the Author

Astrid Lindgren (1907-2002), born Astrid Anna Emilia Ericsson, was a well-known Swedish writer whose works renewed children's literature in Sweden and Scandinavia. Her best-known characters are independent and unconventional, including the untidy Pippi Longstocking, Karlsson, and Emil and his entertaining pranks.

Her books for children received many awards, including the Lewis Carroll Shelf Award for Pippi Longstocking in 1973; the Hans Christian Andersen Award in 1958; and the International Book Award from UNESCO in 1993. Astrid Lindgren's success as an author brought her into the public eye and she became involved in national debates on issues including taxation policies, nuclear power and the treatment of children, refugees and animals. She continued in public life until the age of ninety-one, when she suffered a stroke and stopped appearing in public. Astrid Lindgren passed away at her home in Dalagatan.

Michael Chesworth has illustrated many picture books and is also the creator of "Rainy Day Dream" and "Archibald Frisby," a Reading Rainbow Feature Book. He lives in Amherst, Massachusetts.

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.

i thought i'd found a pippi we hadn't read before, but this is merely a (more heavily illustrated) excerpt from the original "pippi"--which can be had in its entirety for the same price!

On a recent trip to Sweden, I bought my 5 year old granddaughter a small Pippi Longstocking doll, but books were no where! I was happy to find this one on Amazon. The story is typical Pippi, all silliness to capture the attention of another little red haired girl.

All of these books are 32 pages. The content is exactly one chapter from the original book. The wonderful thing is that the books are covered in wonderful pictures, the font is large and are therefore accessible to younger, advanced readers.

This is a great read for all ages, I read all three in the series to my daughter when she was 6 and she loved them. It is great to have a female character who is so outrageous, the antics she gets up to are so funny. An astoundingly good book, get it now.

I bought this book for my niece aged 8 who is also a bookworm in her own domain. She enjoyed it thoroughly and goes back for a chapter or 2 from time to time "just to live in that world for a while" in her own words.

I purchased the original Pippi Longstocking book for my twins and they became big fans, They find the stories to be funny and the characters have captured their imagination. We are gradually working our way through all the books.This has been on of their favourites.

Not for a younger child. My 4 year old was bored and told me to stop reading the book, which she has NEVER done. The story just didn't capture her attention. Will try it again when she is older.
