  • ‘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.’


  • ‘Pippi is impulsive, irrepressible, red-haired and so strong you won’t believe it. Her bizarre adventures delight children and confound health and safety.’


  • ‘[Pippi Longstocking] should certainly be on every child’s bookshelf. Truly difficult children will, I suspect, clamour for Pippi.’
