This is the first long book that my five year old has let me read aloud to her without getting bored. She got so engrossed in the story she even picked it up and re-read chapters on her own.

This is the book that started my lifelong love of reading! One of my elementary school teachers read this to my class. I fell in love with Pippi and books!

I used to want to be her. I always wanted to read the book version (seen 60s and 80s versions). My one problem now that I'm a grown up is that Pippi is a compulsive liar and they never try to help her. She also encourages a lot of bad behavior. No wonder why my mom hated my obsession with her as a child and stopped me from watching all the movies. The good part however of Pippi that I learned as a child was that I was not afraid of what other people though and embraced my individuality and uniqueness as she did, so for that I am thankful! It's just a shame it took me this long to read her book and in a way I feel unsatisfied and feel sorry for her. It's one of those books that when you are reading it you go, "Oh no!!" continuously.
