Britannica Quiz. Not only do I find the history of the origins and publication details of Pippi Longstocking fascinating for their own sake, the whole and entire fact that the Pippi stories originated as oral tales also shows that oral tradition is alive and well, that oral story-telling has not been all that greatly diminished by books, by the written tradition that oral story telling still engenders, still often is the birthplace of the written word.
I originally read Pippi Longstocking in German as Pippi Langstrumpf when I was about nine years old; in fact, my reread in was the very first time I had read Astrid Lindgren in English.
Although I remember enjoying reading about Pippi Longstocking, and count Astrid Lindgren as one of my all-time favourite children's authors, Pippi Longstocking herself has actually never been one of my most beloved Lindgren characters I have always liked Madicken, Emil, the children of Noisy Village, Lotta and Ronja considerably more than I ever liked Pippi.
And, while I have gained a greater appreciation and love for Pippi Longstocking as a character as a result of my reread, she is still not an absolute favourite, nor do I think she will ever become this.
And I do think that my GR friend Emily has hit the nail on the head when she recently mentioned in a discussion thread on Pippi Longstocking in the Children's Literature Group that she would enjoy Pippi Longstocking much more as a character if she were not so invincible, if she did not possess such unlimited powers and wealth.
To me, Pippi's superhuman strength and general invincibility have actually tended to make at least some of the episodes a bit dull and monotonous, as there really is never much tension, or the possibility of Pippi failing, perhaps not rescuing the children from the fire, perchance falling out of the tree there is never even the possibility of that, for Pippi is like a superhero.
As charming and irrepressible as Pippi is, I have always found her a tad too fantastical and extreme to readily identify with and get to know on a personal and intimate basis; she is an amusing and fun character, but I cannot really call her a true kindred spirit.
And one rather important aspect of the Pippi Longstocking story that I noticed while rereading the novel as an adult is that while on the surface, Pippi Longstocking might appear as the invincible super-child a bit like Peter Pan almost , who can do anything, feels confident everywhere, is a wonderful and imaginative playmate, and can always outsmart and outmaneuver the grown-ups and their often petty and for a child incomprehensible rules and regulations, there is a deep element of sadness and loneliness in Pippi Longstocking as well.
Pippi is actually quite alone in the world, and much of her "misbehaving" is not caused by willful and and deliberate rebellion, but because the girl has no one to care for her, to show her the ins and outs, the do's and don'ts of society except, of course, Tommy and Annika, but they are themselves children and just learning.
Thus, while Pippi might have a suitcase full of gold, and lives alone, on her own terms in a quasi children's paradise, she is also lonely at times and in need of both human contact and loving care.
And no, this loving care would and should not be the kind of "care" envisioned by the supposedly concerned townspeople an orphanage , but a loving individual, or a loving family, who would adopt Pippi, accept her imagination, quirks, attitudes and ideas, while at the same time provide guidance and teaching.
Pippi's loneliness despite her wealth and seemingly charmed and charming life and lifestyle, her sadness whenever she realises she has made a mistake and realises she has made a mistake, precisely because she has neither a father nor mother anymore to guide her , has made me connect with and to her during my recent reread and during my regular rereads since then in a manner that I have never been able to do before.
Even if Pippi Longstocking will never take the place in my heart of Lindgren characters like Madicken and Emil, I have come to both appreciate and personally love her.
And finally, I would also like to mention that Pippi Longstocking is definitely a book which I would love to be able to rate with half stars, because, if half stars were possible, I would be giving 3.
As I consider the novel to be a high 3. View all 56 comments. Here's my daughter reading Pippi First, the story. Pippi was written in the 's and it's still utterly captivating to this generation.

Mar 31, Ms. Should I open with a standard guilty disclaimer for disliking yet another childhood staple? How about a shameful admission that reading between the lines has never worked for me?
Or perhaps a simple statement about being too old to enjoy children's books? First and foremost, we have the super-duper-awesome Pippi, who, despite being an orphaned 9-year old, is filthy rich, strong, independent, and does whatever the hell she pleases, a Published in English as Pippi Longstocking Where do I even start?
First and foremost, we have the super-duper-awesome Pippi, who, despite being an orphaned 9-year old, is filthy rich, strong, independent, and does whatever the hell she pleases, albeit firmly within the boundaries of kindness.
At the same time, our enterprising heroine's antics are almost always compared to her friends' complete rule-abiding behavior, making the latter seem a prerequisite of sorts.
The end result is a story made up of an odd mix of "eff the rules" vs "rules exist for a reason". Should children follow Pippi's lead in being more independent, thinking for themselves and always questioning authority before conforming?
Or should they go the tried and true route, like Tommy and Annika did, and thus managing to seamlessly integrate into the adult society.
I kept being baffled by Pippi's immediate hostility in non-threatening situations being quizzed on her Math knowledge at school , or her default kindness in clearly threatening situations serving cookies to burglars who just tried to rob her.
Most of the time however, it seemed impossible not to pity the poor girl: constantly being told that she lacked manners, yet never explaining the how and whys of them.
Even the school teacher, otherwise the nicest adult Pippi comes in contact with, ends up suggesting that Pippi come back later, in lieu of learning to behave.
Did she think Pippi was an unripe fruit, that'd "magically" gain manners after being left out in the sun for a bit?!
Except for Manny's explanation regarding children's rights , or rather, lack thereof, none of them helped shed a light on the book's message.
For all that I'm not normally expecting to have a moral at the end of a story, Pippi's felt like it was trying to hit you over the head with one.
If only I could figure out what exactly the anvil-sized lesson was meant to be all about Jan 21, Riku Sayuj rated it really liked it Shelves: r-r-rs.
For the first few chapters, it is hard to imagine how Larsson could have based the character of Lisbeth on Pippi. Eventually I learned to warp Pippi's world and squeeze it into the supposedly real world filled with rapists and thieves, where little girls have no super strength to get by on.
I could then start to see how Larsson could have imagined, reading Pippi as an adult, that each of pippi's little 'adventures' could have been a tragedy.
Out of a thousand, one might survive. He decided to write about that one, a modern-day Pippi. For, you probably still need Pippi's attitude to survive in a modern-day Sweden even if you don't have her super powers - Lisbeth might have been an orphan and a rebel just like Pippi, she might only have her hacking skills as a proxy for Pippi's super-strength, but at the end of the day both could kick some ass.
The review you have just read above is meant to illustrate how my reading of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo influenced my reading of Pippi Longstocking.
Is it fair to even think of Lisbeth and of Larsson's interpretation of the tale while reading it? Probably not. I wish I could read it far away from Lisbeth's shadow.
Do I blame Larsson now for spoiling some good fun? Probably yes. I just wish I had read Astrid first - of course I might never have heard of Pippi if not for Larsson.
This is an issue I have faced with many books where the source is as enjoyable as the book that referred me to it, but less enjoyable for having read the referring work.
How to get around this? Shall I drop everything and run to a bookstore the moment the slightest footnote pops up? They better stock up before I read Ulysses then.

This is definitely a book I'll suggest to my students. Astrid Lindgren is not popular enough in the United States.
And that makes me sad. It's a favorite children's classic. And it is so well deserved. When I was little, Pippi was everything I ever wanted to be : wild, free and completely unapologetic.
I would get sick a lot when I was a kid colds, pneumonia and that kind of stuff. Reading about Pippi and her adventures always made me feel bette Astrid Lindgren is not popular enough in the United States.
Reading about Pippi and her adventures always made me feel better. I guess you can say that this book is very nostalgic for me.
And if Pippi is a little too much for you, there are some milder characters to choose from. Astrid Lindgren's books are as funny as they are sad and heartbreaking at times.
Full of life truths and lessons - they build an excellent foundation for young reader's minds. The following may be heresy, but, as Michael Dibdin says of his novel The Last Sherlock Holmes Story , it's the heresy of the true believer.
Anyway, now that everyone's read The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo , we can no longer avoid the question. What does Pippi think about sex?
Lisbeth Salander is repeatedly identified with Pippi, and she's quite straightforward about sex.
When she wants it, she goes for it; no shame, no hangups. It's hard to believe that Pippi isn't exactly the same. Of course, Pippi's nine years old, which does give one pause for thought.
But, on the other hand, she's been nine for rather a long time the krumelur-pills , so it's a bit technical when you come down to it.
Also, she's super-strong, and her will is as powerful as her muscles. No chance of anyone making her do anything she didn't want to do.
I'm more concerned about the so-called adults who may have got involved with her. I have a feeling that she makes them feel as stupid and inadequate in bed as out of it.
I know, I know. You want me to name names, don't you? In the films, you can see that, under that dowdy exterior, she's an attractive woman.
And there's something decidedly odd about her relationship with Pippi. She keeps going around to Villa Villekulla on the most absurd pretexts.
She wants to see Pippi for some reason, and then she starts saying that it would be better if she were in a children's home.
Well, indeed, that would put her out of temptation's reach. And she submits to all Pippi's imaginative humiliations with no more than a token shriek or two of protest.
Pippi seems to have a strange hold on her. The kind of hold that someone might have on a secret lover who absolutely daren't reveal herself, for fear of all sorts of appalling consequences.
What do they get up to late at night, when Tommy and Annika have gone home and no one is around to watch except Mr. Nilsson and the horse? I'm afraid I have no more idea than you.
But I do sometimes wonder if Astrid Lindgren left a sealed packet of papers for her literary executor, with strict instructions not to open it until 50 years after her death Of course, this doesn't necessarily mean that Astrid Lindgren would have approved.
Did I think that Tant Pruselius was the goddess Venus? He was specifically referring to the fact that the actress who plays her looks a bit like Glenn Close in Meeting Venus ; he's also seen Venus in The Adventures of Baron Munchausen , one of his favourite films, where she's played by the young Uma Thurman.
I've never discussed my theories about Pippi's private life with Jonathan. Odd that he came up with this independently. View all 5 comments.
L, is for Lindgren 2. This is NOT the kind of story my mom read to me as a child. Wise move, mom, wise move. I am at somewhat of a loss as to how to review this, to be honest.
For one, Pippi is an orphan who has convinced herself she is the daughter of a cannibal king what?! It could have been that I was sick when I read this but it just fell flat all over for me.

I grew up having my mom read the books to me and I used to watch the movies all the time as well.
Pippi Longstocking is a classic that everyone should enjoy at least once in their life. It's about a young girl who lives in a large house with a monkey and a horse, she also happens to be "the strongest girl in the world.
This book is so charming, and completely hilarious. The jokes in this book still hold up after all these years. I guess that is why it's considered a classic.
I love Pippi's sense of adventure and her innocence. She doesn't really think badly of anyone and can't imagine why others are so hard on her sometimes.
She has her own set of rules and doesn't care to fit in with everyone else. We really all could take a few pointers from her. She's a loyal friend and very generous with everyone she meets.
I am a bit bias when it comes to this book since it's just so close to my heart. I don't see any big complaints to mention and this is a great one if you want something fun and light, no matter what the age.
I highly recommend it. View 1 comment. Pipi is funny and different and draws little children out of their normal, every-day lives with her wacky adventures.
BUT, it has no plot and, therefore, is not very attractive to adult readers. It's really a series of short stories that have very little plot or meaning to them in themselves.

About 75 percent through, I started just skimming the stories because they were plotless and all very similar. This, to me, is the mark of a poorly written children's novel.
In my opinion, well-written children's novels appeal to readers of ALL ages, but are appropriate for children. Pipi is supposed to be charming, and is somewhat, but she's also an annoying kid who won't behave and never faces the consequences for it.
No wonder kids like her. She seems to mean well, but doesn't know any better. However, adults are portrayed as passive, impotent, fun-suckers, who don't need to be listened to.
The other two main characters, Tommy and Annika, are very flat and full of stereotypes of little boys and girls. Annika is always fearful and doesn't want to get her dress dirty while Tommy is ready for adventure.

I enjoyed reading it to my younger brothers. They usually won't sit still long enough for me to read anything to them, but they actually were asking ME to read it to them!
So it was a win-win in that area! If you're looking for a good "role model" children's book, this isn't really it, but it was fun, and there certainly wasn't anything bad in it.

When I was a child I read voraciously. My wanting just made it seem real. I idolized Pippi, with her anarchic and eccentric lifestyle, and her enormous physical strength.
I loved escapism, and Pippi was the ultimate companion for fantastical fantasy adventures. So, when I picked up Pippi Longstocking a few days ago I was expecting bliss, along with a warm woolly coating of nostalgia.
But this was not to be. Instead I read it like a cantankerous old lady, on the side of all the authority figures in the book, and tut-tutting over things like her cutting out biscuit dough on the floor.
The chasm between me then and me now is seemingly unbridgeable… I remember how much I loved you though. I remember that.
A GR friend has just read this book to her daughter, and it made me think about that too. In between my experience and hers lies the mysterious world of motherhood, and pleasures that lie beyond my ken.

This book was written by Astrid Lindgren, a Swede, in Two books followed it, describing Pippi further. Pippi is MOST unusual. She lives with a monkey and a horse and alone; no parents.
She is the kind of child that would drive adults to distraction and that is what she did to me for 9 chapters. In Chapter 10, we see her strength and resourcefulness and all of a sudden, I liked Pippi better.
I like to read classics as they frequently have life lessons to teach. Not this time, but I still enjoyed the uniqueness of Pippi's character and her escapades.

Pippi Longstocking is a little girl who lives in an old house called Villa Villekulla and she lives with her pet monkey named Mr. Nilsson and her horse that she rides everywhere to town with.
Her next door neighbors are two kids named Tommy and Annika and when they first met Pippi, they realized that Pippi is no ordinary girl as she climbs inside trees and is so strong that she can easily lift her horse!
I was just simply blown away by this book! Astrid Lindgren has certainly done a brilliant job at portraying Pippi Longstocking as she is shown as a strong and confident heroine!
What made Pippi Longstocking such an endearing character was the fact that she truly was an extraordinary girl and I loved the fact that Pippi is extremely strong and I also enjoyed the odd activities that Pippi does such as dancing with the robbers and climbing inside trees.

I remember reading this as a child. I just picked it up on audio to listen to while traveling with my grandson this summer.
This is a review of a new translation of a children's classic. My comments and the number of stars this edition gets has nothing to do with my adoration of Pippi Longstocking, which my review of the previous edition should make pretty clear.
I'm always wildly excited to hear of new translations of books I love, so it saddens me to have to say I'm disappointed in this one.
It was published in honor of the th anniversary of the birth of Astrid Lindgren, the author of the Pippi books. Lindgren li This is a review of a new translation of a children's classic.
Lindgren lived to be 94 years old, which makes me very happy. There's a little information about Lindgren on the last page of this edition, but I wish the editors had taken the opportunity to tell more — to mention, for instance, that Lindgren came up with the stories when her young daughter was sick in bed and said, apropos of nothing, "Tell me a story about Pippi Longstocking.
Lindgren obliged, and later wrote some of the Pippi stories down thank goodness. None of this is mentioned in this new edition — which seems, as I said, a lost chance, since it's as good a story as any of Pippi's adventures.
I can't fairly judge Lauren Child's illustrations for this edition. I love her work, and the pictures are perfectly cute; but I grew up with the old black-and-white illustrated editions of the Pippi books, and I can't help finding those pictures edgier and more interesting.
I think I can fairly comment on the new translation, even though I'm deeply attached to the old one. The fact is, this is a job that just didn't need doing.
It's not as if the text of the old edition was unclear. In fact, the previous translation gives its young readers more credit for intelligence than this one does.
As a child, I loved reading about Pippi making " pepparkakor -- a kind of Swedish cookie," as that translation put it. Tiina Nunnally simply says that Pippi was "baking gingersnaps.
Their initial errand is simply to ask for some food, but when they see Pippi counting up a great number of gold coins, they decide to make an excuse for knocking on her door, quickly case the joint, and come back later to steal the loot.
Even as a very young reader, though, I was able to work out what this phrasing meant, and to be amused by it. Do you know any more riddles?
This paragraph also gave me my first introduction to the idea that different cultures describe certain noises differently. I think this is important as well as entertaining.
Plenty of American grownups are weak on this concept, and this national chauvinism is not, in my opinion, making the world a better place.
But by all means go in peace. Those brackets are in the original. I loved that as a kid. It was my first introduction to what kind of work it takes to translate a book from one language to another — a subject that has fascinated me ever since.
The tramps thought that Pippi was too young to know about clocks, so without another word they turned on their heels and left. Now, look.
The whole book seems dedicated to rooting out any references to the fact that this book was written in Swedish. Note to the world: kids who are old enough to read Pippi are old enough to handle some unfamiliar references.
So, yeah, I found this translation of a favorite book condescending. So say I. And tack for hearing me out. Jul 20, Tyler J Gray rated it really liked it Shelves: classics , children-s , own-physical , own , s.
TW: Fire. I always sort of assumed I had read Pippi Longstocking, until very recently when I was trying to describe it to my kids, and realized that I had seen the old movie and read other books by Astrid Lindgren, and conflated them.
So I decided to remedy that all around by reading the first book aloud to my kids, and of course I had to have the fully illustrated edition with pictures by Lauren Child, because of our fondness for Charlie and Lola.
