Quotes & Awards

  • “Pippi is an irrepressible, irreverent, and irrefutably delightful girl who lives alone (with a monkey) in her wacky house…Astrid Lindgren has created a unique and lovable character, inspiring generations of children to want to be Pippi. More than anything, Pippi makes reading a pleasure; no child will welcome the end of the book, and many will return to Pippi Longstocking again and again. Simply put, Pippi is irresistible.”

    " I read this to my 6-9 year olds. They loved it. Pippi Longstocking has all of the fun, absurd story lines that kids this age love. I loved it too! I'm glad to see that Lindgren has lots of Pippi books because I'll want to read at least a couple more to my students. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angela | 1/17/2014

    " We loved Pippi Longstocking- her super strength, resourcefulness, sense of fun, and best of all, her big heart! Pippi is a great role model for young kids. Astrid Lindgren does a beautiful job creating a child's world filled with adventure and imagination. My son had such a great time imagining how he might enjoy playing with Pippi and her neighbors. Lindren's language is straightforward and well-written- making it perfect for very young children to enjoy the story without struggling too much with words and meaning. Proves once again that simple can be just as lovely as complex. We're currently reading a few other things, but fully intend to read more in the Pippi series. "
