Pippi Longstocking is nine years old and lives all by herself with a horse, a monkey, a suitcase full of gold, and no grown-ups to tell her what to do. She's wild and funny and her crazy ideas are always getting her into trouble! In these three favourite stories, Pippi performs at the circus, is reunited with her long-lost father, and takes her friends Tommy and Annika on a trip to the Canny Canny Islands. She also finds a squeazle, gives a shark a good telling-off, and turns 43 somersaults in the air before breakfast! Everything's fun with Pippi around! This edition is illustrated throughout with black and white line drawings by best-selling artist, Tony Ross.

About the Author:

Astrid Lindgren was born in 1907, and grew up on a farm in the south of Sweden. Her first book was published in 1944, followed a year later by Pippi Longstocking. She published more than one hundred books in her lifetime and is still the most popular children's author in Sweden. Her books have been translated into more than ninety languages, and she received numerous honours and awards including the Hans Christian Andersen Award and the International Book Award. She died in 2002.

Review:

"Pippi is in the great tradition of children's protagonists who subvert the adult world, whether by questioning it, like Alice, or simply throwing it into chaos, like Dr Seuss's Cat in the Hat." --Sean French, The Guardian

"Generations of children have grown up loving these wonderful stories about the invincible girl with the unforgettable name." --Manchester Evening News

"Funny, charismatic Pippi is the person every small child wants to be . . . Magical Stuff." --Frances Perkins, Dorset Society

"I read this book to my son (aged just 5). He laughed so much that he fell off the bed!" --Amazon reviewer

"She's the greatest thing since sliced bread and twice as perky . . . a fabulous romp. It hasn't aged a jot." Amazon reviewer

"I don't know who is enjoying this book more - my six year old son or myself. Pippi is a feisty character with a touch of the superhero about her and is as appealing to me now as she was when I was a kid." --Amazon reviewer

"One of the Greatest Female Characters Ever Created . . . This is terrific reading for all ages both girls and boys." --Amazon Reviewer
