Celebrating 70 years of everyone's favourite quirky heroine Pippi Longstocking!
Generations of children have grown up loving these wonderful stories about the invincible girl with the unforgettable name. Manchester Evening News I read this book to my son (aged just 5). He laughed so much that he fell off the bed! 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 Funny, charismatic Pippi is the person every small child wants to be ... Magical Stuff. Frances Perkins, Dorset Society 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 She's the greatest thing since sliced bread and twice as perky. For a fabulous romp through the increasingly ridiculous, I more than recommend this quirky spunky fan-freakin'-tastic book. It hasn't aged a jot. Amazon reviewer
