9780142402498: Pippi Longstocking (Puffin Modern Classics)

Tommy and his sister Annika have a new neighbor, and her name is Pippi Longstocking. She has crazy red pigtails, no parents to tell her what to do, a horse that lives on her porch, and a flair for the outrageous that seems to lead to one adventure after another!

Review:

Pippi is an irrepressible, irreverent and irrefutably delightful girl who lives alone (with a monkey) in her wacky house, Villa Villekulla. When she's not dancing with the burglars who were just trying to rob her house, she's attempting to learn the "pluttification" tables at school, fighting Adolf, the strongest man in the world at the circus or playing tag with police officers. Pippi's high-spirited, good-natured antics cause as much trouble as fun, but a more generous child you won't find anywhere.

Astrid Lindgren has created a unique and lovable character, inspiring generations of children to want to be Pippi. More than anything, Pippi makes reading a pleasure; no child will welcome the end of the book, and many will return to Pippi Longstocking again and again. Simply put, Pippi is irresistible. (Ages 9 to 12)

Review:

Lauren Child's... version of Astrid Lindgren's Pippi Longstocking is sublime. ( Amanda Craig, The Times )

[Child's] an inspired choice to hook a new generation of children on Sweden's greatest literary export. ( Susanna Forest, Telegraph Review )

Some word and picture partnerships are akin to a marriage made in heaven. First there was EH Shepard and AA Milne, then Quentin Blake and Roald Dahl - now Lauren Child and Astrid Lindgren. If ever there was an illustrator born to understand the psyche and well-loved quirkiness of Pippi Longstocking and infuse it with a 21st-century edge, then Child is that artist. ( Junior )

There's no stopping Lauren Child as she brings her own inimitable style to illustrate Pippi Longstocking... Everyone will love this. ( The Bookseller )

Lauren Child... is the perfect choice to illustrate this handsome, large format edition of Pippi... her unmistakable illustrative style helps to bring a modern feel to the book and will enable another generation of readers to enjoy the exploits of this extraordinary little girl. ( Books for Keeps )
