One of three delightful stories featuring the irrepressible Pippi Longstocking. Spot-on for both boys and for girls for reading aloud and for reading alone and this edition is illustrated throughout by bestselling artist, Tony Ross, who also illustrated the Horrid Henry series and the Little Princess stories. Pippi Longstocking has been in print continuously since first publication, making Pippi one of the most popular children's characters ever. Over 145 million copies of Astrid Lindgren's books have been sold worldwide in 91 languages.
Pippi Longstocking is one of the most popular children's characters of all time and is still much loved by millions of children today.
This anniversary edition of Pippi Longstocking in the South Seas will introduce Pippi and her adventurous spirit to a whole new generation of readers. Nine year old Pippi is an unusual and unpredictable character, she lives alone with a monkey, a horse, and no rules whatsoever! Every day is a crazy adventure with Pippi, but what else would you expect from the daughter of a swashbuckling pirate captain?! In this collection of stories Pippi and her friends, Tommy and Annika, set sail for the Canny Canny Islands, where Pippi's father is king. They explore secret caves, and play marbles with real pearls. Luckily the pirates and sharks they meet are no match for Pippi Longstocking!
And Pippi fans will love this activity pack with colouring in, a Pippi quiz and puzzles - and guidance on how to help children get the most out of the Pippi books.
