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!
