Publisher Comments:

The definitive Pippi Longstocking, in paperback for the first time!

For over sixty years, Astrid Lindgren's irrepressible red-haired, freckle-faced Pippi Longstocking has been a favorite of children all over the world. This enchanting edition features an all-new translation by award-winning Tiina Nunnally and full-color illustrations throughout by Lauren Child, creator of Charlie and Lola. Child's pictures are the perfect match for Lindgren's text. "I discovered Pippi Longstocking when I was eight years old and found her completely inspiring . . . . an entirely free spirit," Lauren Child says. With a free-wheeling, playful design, this captivating new edition captures the essence of its beloved heroine.

Synopsis:

Tommy and Annika have a new neighbor: red-haired, freckle-faced Pippi Longstocking, who has upside-down braids and no parents to tell her what to do. The three children have the most rollicking adventures on their own, with horses and monkeys, the circus, and more!

Synopsis:

Astrid Lindgren's story of feisty, red-haired Pippi has been given a sparkling new translation by award-winning Tiina Nunnally and engaging pictures by acclaimed Lauren Child.
