Week Four of My #SummerofVintageKidLit – Pippi Longstocking!
Last week we read Canadian Summer, and you can read my quick recap in the comments of this post 🙂
This week, we’re reading Astrid Lindgren’s Pippi Longstocking, a highly inventive, humorous story about a very unusual little girl. I read this one when I was about nine years old, and I remember enjoying all of Pippi’s fun antics, so I’m looking forward to re-reading it. 🙂
Here’s a summary about this book from Goodreads:
Pippi is nine years old. She lives alone in her own house with a horse and a monkey, and she does exactly as she pleases. Her friends Tommy and Annika are green with envy – but although they have to go to school and go to bed when they are told, they still have time to join Pippi on all her great adventures.
