Pippi Goes Aboard Synopsis

Are you carrying a monkey on your shoulder? Pippi is! Have you ever caught an escaped tiger? Pippi has! Do you know of a tree that grows chocolate bars? Pippi does! Pippi, Tommy and Annika have the best time together - going to the circus, buying ALL the sweets in the sweet shop and getting shipwrecked for the weekend. But when Pippi's long-lost father comes to visit, will Pippi sail away to sea with him and leave Tommy and Annika behind?

Pippi Goes Aboard Press Reviews

'Generations of children have grown up loving these wonderful stories about the invincible girl with the unforgettable name.' - Manchester Evening News

'Funny, charismatic Pippi is the person every small child wants to be ... Magical Stuff.' - Frances Perkins, Dorset Society

'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, The Guardian
