Title: Pippi Longstocking
Series: Pippi Longstocking #1
Author: Astrid Lindgren
Rating: 3 of 5 Stars
Pippi Longstocking, the strongest girl in the world, moves into Villa Villecula, all by herself.
Her neighbors have adventures with her and romps ensue.
I remember reading this back in gradeschool and thinking it was the most humorous book ever. It was the Gold Standard of Funny.
Reading this now, I can understand why my young self was so enamored. It is immature, all about the kids and them having Adventures that every kid can only dream about.
The adults are adults from a kids perspective, existing but usually getting in the way.
I’m rating this 3 because I’m an adult. But for kids, and my Inner Kid, I’m giving it a 5.
