Do you remember Pippi?
The Pippi Longstocking series was written by Swedish author, Astrid Lindgren. The 11 Pippi chapter books were published from 1945 to 2000. The books have been translated into 64 languages.
Pippi has fiery red hair, which she wears in pigtails pulled so tightly that they stick out sideways from her head. She sports a short patchwork dress with mismatched thigh-high stockings and big shoes.
As an unconventional eight-year-old, she spins many a tall tale and finds adventures around nearly every corner. She lives in a small Swedish village in a house she calls Villa Villekulla with her monkey, Mr. Nilsson and her horse, Lilla Gubben (Little Buddy). Her partners in crime, so to speak, are two children who live next door, Tommy and Annika.
Aside from her super-strength and keen common sense, Pippi possesses two main items. She has a suitcase full of gold coins, and a large chest of drawers containing various small treasures.
