    Pippi goes on board

    How would you like to never go to school, buy 30 pounds of candy and billions of toys for your friends, and invent a new kind of medicine. And best of all live yourself with a monkey and a horse without parents always telling you to go to bed on time and blah, blah blah. Well thats the life of Pippi until her father King Efraim (King of the canibals) comes, Will Pippi leave her perfect home and all her friends to be a canibal princess and live with her dad?

    Pippi's Fun and Exciting Life Continues

    This is the original book. The story is the second in a continuation of 3 or 4 Pippi stories. Children will be excited about traveling the world with Pippi and her friends! Great for 3rd grade and above.
