  • Praise for Pippi Longstocking: I don't know who is enjoying this book more - my six year old son or myself. Pippi is a feisty character with a touch of the superhero about her and is as appealing to me now as she was when I was a kid. - Amazon Reviewer
  • Praise for Pippi Longstocking: Funny, charismatic Pippi is the person every small child wants to be . . . Magical Stuff. - Frances Perkins
  • Praise for Pippi Longstocking: 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. - Sean French, Dorset Society
  • Praise for Pippi Longstocking: She's the greatest thing since sliced bread and twice as perky. For a fabulous romp through the increasingly ridiculous, I more than recommend this quirky spunky fan-freakin'-tastic book. It hasn't aged a jot. - Amazon Reviewer
  • I love how unconsciously rebellious she is. She doesn't care about rules, she cares about people - Alicia Vikander
