Summary

Pippi Longstocking lives in a house with a horse, a monkey, a suitcase full of gold, and no grown-ups to tell her what to do. She's wild and funny and full of crazy ideas! One of the most popular children's characters of all time, Pippi's unique spirit and wonderful tales have been entertaining readers and listeners for 75 years.

Critic reviews

"Pippi is in the great tradition of children's protagonists who subvert the adult world, whether by questioning it, like Alice, or simply throwing it into chaos, like Dr Seuss's Cat in the Hat." (Sean French, The Guardian)

Sandi Toksvig is perfect 👍

Well read and thoroughly enjoyable. My kids love this story - so many things that could never happen especially in today's world - a nice bit of escapism.

A celebration of the ridiculous

Astrid Lingstren’s creation of Pippi Longstocking is an inspired and delightful characterisation of the child in all of us. Pippi is a parentless girl who exercises choice and prioritises fun and kindness but also works hard and is strong and fearless in everything she does. She is a role model and superhero for all children in all times.

There’s nothing like a bit of Pippi.

I’m a middle-aged woman, and this still gives me so much joy. The narration is sublime too. Never fails to put a smile on my face.

Love it

The only thing that I would like you to do is to maybe make the voices different instead of Pippie being quite posh

Nostalgic story

I used to watch Pippi when I was a girl and was in pre of her strength & skill to be resistant.

A whimsical tale

I quite enjoyed the pendulum between Pippi's naïveté and source of creativity. Fall in line or be a free spirit commentary is superb
