This is one of my favorite books from my childhood. I got the book as a present one summer when I was nine years old. The story was very entertaining for me at the time. Pippi in the South Seas is a sequel with new adventures of Pippi Longstocking.At the beginning of the story is a beautiful description of the small town where Pippi Longstocking lives. Many other details from this beautiful story are easy to picture. Pippi is a brave girl who always says what is on her mind. She isn¿t afraid to confront older people with her opinion. She is special in other ways, too. Pippi is supernaturally strong. She can fight against mean and dangerous people. She doesn¿t go to school but has a quick mind. She is playful, imaginative and energetic. Pippi Longstocking is a synonym for independence and freedom. She is a child who lives alone with pets in her Vila. Siblings Tommi and Annica are her neighbors and best friends. She is very kind, cheerful and protective towards them.The real adventure starts when Pippi's father, the king of a small island in the South Seas, takes the children with him on an unforgettable trip. This book is a delightful classic.

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.
