I read this book for the "A Foreign Book Translated Into English" part of my 2018 reading challenge. It was ok, but I found Pippi a bit annoying. I know being headstrong and quirky is her charm, it just didn't do it for me.

An absolute delight. Whether you are reading this to yourself or to a child, you will laugh at Pippi's adventures, smile at Lauren Child's illustrations, and will yourself to be living the life that Pippi has. I mean - what 9-year-old wouldn't want to be living by themselves with a pet monkey and a horse on their front porch?!

Pippi is a great role-model for all girls everywhere.

This is a new translation of the first book about Pippi Longstocking. It's not that different from the original English translation from some decades ago, a few different word-choices is all I noticed, but the new illustrations by Lauren Child are a delight. Pippi Longstocking is a great, laugh-out-loud story to read to your child or to a class, and is reallly good choice for a child reading novels on their own as well.
