Celebrating seventy-five years of Pippi Longstocking—a beloved story of a strong, spunky girl and her hilarious adventures.

Pippi Longstocking has no parents around and no rules to follow. She is her own boss. Pippi has been including her friends Tommy and Annika in some of her wild adventures—like buying and eating seventy-two pounds of candy, or sailing off to an island in the middle of a lake to see what it’s like to be shipwrecked. But then Pippi’s long-lost father returns, and she might have to leave Villa Villekulla!

From the Hans Christian Andersen Medal-winning author of the classic Pippi Longstocking, this is another rollicking adventure that’s sure to please fans of the strong, spunky, fun-loving little girl.

“Lovers of Pippi Longstocking will welcome this rollicking tale of a topsy-turvy world in which Pippi and her next-door neighbors put into practice some ideas about good times.” - School Library Journal
