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!

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.

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.
