Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jeanne K. Pettenati
This book, which is based on two chapters from Pippi Longstocking, seems to be missing something. Although Pippi's exuberant zest for life is captured in the illustrations, readers unfamiliar with this nine-year old are bound to be baffled. Where does she come up with such outlandish words and actions? Her thoughts and deeds stem from her isolation in the world. Pippi and her animals are alone because her mother is an "angel" in Heaven and her father presumably drowned. Unfortunately, not much background information is offered in the story. Pippi, who lives according to her whims, wreaks havoc when she tries out her neighborhood school. Pippi manages to enrage the teacher and shock the students with her nonsensical answers to arithmetic questions and when she draws on the classroom floor because her paper isn't big enough. Pippi discovers that school cramps her style, and very casually and cheerfully gives it up. 1998 (orig.
Children's Literature - Phyllis Kennemer
Adapted and illustrated for young children, this classic tale of Pippi's brief visit to school offers the potential for introducing this carefree character to a greater audience. A short introduction of Pippi and her eccentric lifestyle prepares readers for the wild antics that follow. The fourth chapter in the original Pippi Longstocking is followed rather closely. A few sentences are omitted throughout, but this does not detract from the meaning. For some reason, the ibex, used to illustrate the letter "I" as part of Pippi's reading lesson in the original text has been changed to an iguana. Chesworth has depicted Pippi as a zany red-haired youngster wearing oversized shoes and a much-patched blue jumper. His illustrations will entice children to pick up the book and to participate in Pippi's joyous approach to life. Part of the "Pippi Longstocking Storybook" series. 1998 (orig.
