Book - Do You Know Pippi Longstocking? - Astrid Lindgren


We are HUGE Pippi Longstocking fans, and so it's fitting that we have added Sweden's most popular children's book character to our collection.

Pippi Longstocking is 9 years old and lives in Villa Villekulla with a horse, a monkey (Mr Nillson) and a big suitcase of gold coins. She is the STRONGEST person in the world (another reason why we love her) and thinks nothing of wrestling a circus strongman or a burglar.

This special edition of the picture book version of Pippi Longstocking was published to celebrate Pippi’s 70th birthday, it is the perfect introduction to this lovable Swedish character.

We just love Pippi's sense of fun and adventure!

Astrid Lindgren was born in Vimmerby, Sweden in 1907. In the course of her life she wrote over 40 books for children, and has sold over 145 million copies worldwide. Many of Lindgren's stories re based upon her memories of childhood and they are filled with lively unconventional characters.
