    Short Description for Pippi Longstocking Pippi Longstocking is nine years old.

She would much rather spend her days arranging wild, exciting adventures to enjoy with her neighbours, Tommy and Annika, or entertaining everyone she meets with her outrageous stories.

    Pippi Longstocking3

    Mark Thwaite Astrid Lindgren was born in Sweden in 1907. Her children's classic, Pippi Longstocking, first appeared in 1945. In celebration of their hundredth year publishing children's books, and the hundredth anniversary of Lindgren's birth, Oxford University Press have published this lovely gift version of her well-loved classic, newly translated by Tiina Nunnally and featuring some quite fabulous artwork by award-wining children's books illustrator Lauren Child.
    Pippi is nine years old and she has just moved into Villa Villekulla where she lives all by herself with a horse, a monkey, and a big suitcase full of gold coins. All the adults around her try to make Pippi behave "properly" but Pippi – quite rightly, I say! – has other ideas. Pippi would much rather spend her time playing with Tommy and Annika or telling her outrageously surreal tall tales.
    Astrid Lindgren once said, 'I write to amuse the child within me, and can only hope that other children may have some fun that way, too.' Pitched at a readership of between 5 and 9 years, older children will love it, and the adults reading to them will be equally enchanted by this timeless, charming book. by Mark Thwaite
