When Pippi’s father, the king, sends for her, she decides to take her best friends Tommy and Annika with her to Kurrekurredutt Island. The island is fantastic and Pippi has one crazy adventure after another! Pippi is even made a princess---Princess Pippilotta. But will Pippi and her friends really want to live on the island forever, never to return to Villa Villekulla?

I loved the Pippi stories when I was a little girl, but I don't think my children ever loved them as much as I did. This one has Pippi going to visit her father in the South Seas.

Take a trip with Pippi to an island that her dad is king of. A very well-written book that puts our heroine in danger... but she's the strongest girl in the world! Read and enjoy.
