The Amazing Pippi Longstocking by Astrid Lindgren

Pippi Longstocking (Puffin Modern Classics) Pippi Longstocking by Astrid Lindgren

My review

rating: 4 of 5 stars
This was a book from my choice for the Daring Book Challenge.

Have heard of this book over the years and never read as a child (eventhough it was first published in 1945).

The story is of a zany little girl, 9 years old, who lives by herself - her mother having died and her father, a sea captain, disappearing at sea.

Pippi can do exactly as she wants, is very strong and has a pet monkey, Mr. Nelson, who sits on her shoulder. Delightful childrens story
