Pippi Longstocking *pre-loved*
The grown-ups in her village try to make Pippi behave in ways that they think a little girl should, but Pippi has other ideas. She would much rather spend her days arranging wild, exciting adventures to enjoy with her neighbours, Tommy and Annika, or entertaining everyone she meets with her outrageous stories. Pippi thinks nothing of wrestling a circus strongman, dancing a polka with burglars, or tugging a bull's tail and her wildly unconventional lifestyle is matched by Lauren Child's free-spirited illustrations.
This is a pre-loved paperback of Pippi Longstocking, by Astrid Lindgren, and illustrated by Lauren Child. This book was first published in 1945 and this small format, gift edition was printed in 2011. The book is in excellent condition, with almost-imperceptible wear to the cover.
