This is the first of the Pippi series. Learn about Pippi and her friends Annika, Tommy, and of course Mr. Nilsson (a monkey)! Very fun for both girls and boys age 8 to adult.

We bought this book. Pippi Longstocking is a classic that's becoming increasingly overlooked. It's an offbeat tale (in the vein of Roald Dahl's works, but more whimsical and less creepy) of a little girl whose father is lost at sea and who lives alone in a villa in a typical (older) suburban neighborhood. Her best friends are her neighbors Tommy and Annika, who are transported to a wild mentality when they're around Pippi that breaks free of the rigorous demands and roles the rest of the world is putting on them. There's no doubting that Pippi is a black sheep, at times nonsensical, and badly behaving. But likewise she also encourages Tommy and Annika (and the readers through Tommy and Annika) to look at things a new way, question why things are as they are, and encourages them not to forget to have fun. While it's true that Pippi is becoming dated, the situations, especially socially, that the children in this book face are still real. Speaking as a girl who always wanted to be as strong, brave and clever as Pippi when I grew up these books can still make a great, fun read for kids, and can give kids a sorely needed role model in the literary world (especially girls, who are a little light on literary heroes to begin with). We read it before bed at night over the last few weeks and my kids looked forward to it every night. They enjoy Pippi's silly logic, but most of all her indomitable spirit and her willingness to try anything and face up to the scariest of situations. Highly recommended for older, but still child audiences, Pippi Longstocking is a great teacher of not judging a person by their looks, but how they support and empower the people around them. Recommended for: 7 and up (loose) Contains: Kids playing with guns (briefly)

I bought this book for my granddaughter. She is nine and goes to school on line.Reading this book was a class assignment. In the past she has enjoyed reading some of her assigned reading material...Charlotte's Web,Robinson Crusoe, etc. She had to be coaxed and bribed to finish these books. She read Pippi Longstockings in one sitting....It was amazing. She laughed, she cried and she loved the book....It seemed to be a turning point for her. She now reads on a daily basis.I think we owe this progress to Pippi Longstockings...I would recommend this book for any girl of the ages above....Boys might enjoy it also, but the book is directed towards little girls....

I read this book as a child. I wanted to read it again & I enjoyed it as much as I did then. It is a thrilling book from a childs viewpoint. As an adult I still enjoyed it.

This was a fun book to read, though I'm not sure how it grew into such a phenomenon. It is amusing and superficial, and a very quick read.

I was around 7 when I read my first Pippi book. And now we just finished reading it to our 3 year old. As we read the chapters I remembered all the quirks of Pippi that had made me smile over 30 years ago, and i saw my 3 year old smile with me. We were looking for a book to read out of a little every night, something that was more complex than Dr. Seuss books and Pippi was perfect. I highly recommend it!
