The Best of Pippi Longstocking Synopsis

Pippi Longstocking is nine years old and lives all by herself with a horse, a monkey, a suitcase full of gold - and no grown-ups to tell her what to do. She's wild and funny and her crazy ideas are always getting her into trouble! In these three favourite stories, Pippi performs at the circus, is reunited with her long-lost father and takes her friends Tommy and Annika on a trip to the Canny Canny Islands. She also finds a squeazle, gives a shark a good telling-off and turns 43 somersaults in the air before breakfast!
