about this item

Originally published in 1950, this best-selling book, featuring brand-new, full-color illustrations, once again brings to life the escapades of a lucky little girl who lives with a horse and a monkey, but without any parents, at the edge of a Swedish village.
In 1950, Viking published the original English version of Pippi Longstocking, the story of an irrepressible red-haired, freckle-faced girl who lived with a monkey and a horse, slept with her feet on the pillow, and found her way into the hearts of children all over the world. Now, Astrid LindgrenÂ's best-selling book has been given a sparkling new translation by the awardwinning Tiina Nunnally and delightful full-color illustrations by the critically acclaimed Lauren Child. This large-format gift book is sure to become the definitive edition of a favorite classic.
