Pippi Longstocking is nine years old. She remembers: 'I found Pippi when I was about eight years old and found her completely inspiring. Just like Tommy and Annika, readers are instantly charmed by her warmth and sense of fun. She has just moved into Villa Villekulla exactly where she lives all by herself getting a horse, a monkey, and a big suitcase total of gold coins. ' When she was expanding up, Lauren Child loved Astrid Lindgren's books. ' Known and loved as the creator of some equally feisty little girls - notably Clarice Bean and Lola - Lauren has brought her own inimitable style to this beautifully-illustrated edition of Pippi Longstocking. Generations of youngsters have fallen in love with Pippi Longstocking. She would much rather spend her days arranging wild, exciting adventures to enjoy with her neighbours, Tommy and Annika, or entertaining everyone she meets with her outrageous stories. Astrid Lindgren's children's classic first appeared in 1945. Astrid once commented, 'I write to amuse the youngster inside me, and can only hope that other children may possibly have some fun that way, too. The grown-ups inside the village try and create Pippi behave in methods that they think a little girl should, but Pippi has other ideas. Pippi thinks absolutely nothing of wrestling a circus strongman, dancing a polka with burglars, or tugging a bull's tail.
