ISBN 0590016555 - Every time I read this story, I think of those poor parents who think every book their child reads needs to send the "right" message - and Pippi's far from that right message! And that's everything I like about her.

Pippi's mother is an angel, her father is a ship's captain who was lost at sea - Pippi believes he's become a cannibal king. She moves into the home that her father had meant for them to live in together, Villa Villekulla, and starts shaking things up for her new neighbors, Tommy and Annika. Pippi is stronger than the strongest man in the universe, doesn't attend school, tells fantastic tall tales and generally does whatever she chooses. She's as funny as you remember her being!

Pippi's always been a bit of the female Peter Pan, but instead of living away from the world, she lives alone IN the world. Message stories are great but, every now and then, a little silliness is more important and Pippi is certainly silly!

A classic, of course, written around 1950. I believe in giving girls as well as boys strong role models, so I always use this as a read-aloud in my elementary school classes.

Oh wow...I was just looking at another book when I saw this down in the suggestion box. I used to have this book as a kid, about 10yrs old or so and I loved it!!!! I can still remember exactly what my copy looks like. Seeing this just brought up memories of sneaking my flashlight under my sheets to read it after I was supposed to go to sleep...LOL.
This is a fun book for any child!!!!! :D
