About the book...

Pippi Longstocking is a fiery, spunky heroine. She lives in her house - Villa Villekulla- with only her monkey and horse because her father was a sea captain who's been missing, and her mother died when she was young. When Tommy and Annika- who live next door- meet Pippi, they love her at once. The three become great friends and have adventures. In fact adventure and sometimes trouble seem to follow Pippi.

There are some really funny parts to the story that will have parents and kids alike laughing along. There are also some touching and thought-provoking parts that are worth talking about. Pippi is a little girl, living alone. And despite her animal friends that live with her and Tommy and Annika next door, she has to fend for herself and misses her parents.
