Book - The Best of 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 chapter book is suitable for readers 7+ and includes three great stories bout the unstoppable Pippi Longstocking.

Book 1 - Pippi Lomgstocking

Book 2 - Pippi Goes Abroad

Book 3 - Pippi in the Sout Seas

A great introduction to this much loved character and her unconventional life.We just love her sense of fun and adventure!
