Nearly two decades after her death, Astrid Lindgren remains one of Sweden's beloved cultural figures. In America, she is best known for her charming tales of Pippi Longstocking, the irrepressible rebel and "strongest girl in the world." We are pleased to present two of Lindgren's classic Pippi novels for readers 9 to 12, with Danish illustrator Ingrid Vang Nyman's original drawings from the 1940s editions.
When Pippi's father, King Efraim, sends for her, she decides to take her best friends Tommy and Annika with her to Kurrekurredutt Island, which turns out to be a fantastic place. In this third volume in the series, Pippi is even made a princess—Princess Pippilotta. Despite the nonstop fun, though, will Pippi and her friends really want to live on the island forever, never to return to Villa Villekulla again?
