This time Pippi really does leave for her father's island, and takes Annika and Tommy with her. It's fun and cute and Pippi does all the things children wish they could do. As a child, I didn't know that there were sequels to the original book, but I'm happy to see that there are. ( )

In elementary school one of my best friends and I were so obsessed with Pippi Longstockings (admittedly because of those old Swedish movies which were horribly dubbed into English). I remember wanting to make a play, but being stumped by the impossibility of being able to pick up a horse! ( )

Apparently, three Pippi books in succession was one too many.

Pippi is a girl with amazing strength, but not manners. Her friends Tommy and Annika, live next door to Pippi's house, Villa Villekula, where she lives alone. Her father is a king of a remote island, and her mother is dead. Pippi does not go to school; she doesn't even have a job! Pippi lives off of her piles of gold around her house. The main adventure in this book comes with a letter. The letter is from Pippi's father asking her to come to his island. Ofcourse, she says yes. Tommy and Annika are distraught at the thought of Pippi leaving for so long, maybe even forever! Pippi gets permission from their parents to let them go. (copied and pasted from Amazon)
