I remember the name of this character but I’m not entirely sure if this is the exact book I read.

I can see why children would enjoy reading this book, but I really didn't. Pippi was a compulsive liar, was rude, disrespectful and disobedient without ever suffering the consequences for her actions. Personally, I don't understand why this is a classic and certainly wouldn't want my kids reading it. ( )

I love the Grrrl power of this book. Pippi might have been a brat by most people's standards, but she was strong, witty and lived by her own rules. She accepted herself unconditionally. ( )

Nonsensical, perfect for kids. ( )

A nice little palate cleanser between my first steps onto the year. A children's book is always bound to show you a silver lining whenever you need it, and that's exactly what this did to me!

Cute read if you need a lil pick me up. ( )

First words
Way out at the end of a tiny little town was an overgrown garden, and in the garden was an old house, and in the house lived Pippi Longstocking.
At the end of a little Swedish town lay an old, overgrown orchard.

(translated by Edna Hurup, 1954)
