Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An enticing, newly illustrated collection of the enduringly popular Pippi stories. Since Pippi Longstocking was first published in 1950, the escapades of the incomparable Pippi,the girl with upside-down braids and no parents to tell her what to do, have delighted boys and girls alike. Now, for the first time, Pippi Longstocking, Pippi Goes on Board, and Pippi in the South Seas are all together in one bumper volume, with new illustrations in full-color and black-and-white. The collection is an ideal introduction for anyone discovering Pippi for the first time, while confirmed fans will enjoy revisiting their favorite episodes and recalling some they've forgotten. Her admirers will also find fascinating new biographical information about author Astrid Lindgren and the origin of the Pippi stories. Astrid Lindgren was awarded the 1958 Hans Christian Andersen Medal for her contribution to international children's literature.

Since I first read the Pippi Longstocking many adventures when I was just a child, I fell in love with the high spirited and wonderfully creative as well as original character. Her independence, common sense, strength, resourcefulness, and compassion were a tremendous inspiration to me. Even as an adult I am still captivated by the wonderfull adventures of Pippi Longstocking. It is a book that must be part of every child's library and it is a literature classic.
This edition is a collection of three of the most popular Pippi Longstocking series. The graphics and drawrings are beautiful and just add to the enjoyment of the book.
