Description

Pippi Longstocking is one of the most popular children's characters of all time and is still much loved by millions of children today. This collection of Pippi stories will introduce her adventurous spirit to a whole new generation of readers. 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 this single-volume edition of three favourite books, 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.

Review quote

I adored this book when I was a child. * Cressida Cowell, The Week * 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 * 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 * Funny, charismatic Pippi is the person every small child wants to be . . . Magical Stuff. * Frances Perkins, Dorset Society * 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 * I read this book to my son (aged just 5). He laughed so much that he fell off the bed! * Amazon reviewer * Generations of children have grown up loving these wonderful stories about the invincible girl with the unforgettable name. * Manchester Evening News *
