Pippi Longstocking by Astrid Lindgren

book 2 of 8 for the Hans Christian Andersen Award challenge

I grew up watching this movie, and so it was fun to introduce her to my children (7 1/2 and 5). Pippi is a great character - lives like an adult, on her own, but with the innocent mentality of a toddler. The kids loved her crazy antics (climbing up on the roof, sleeping with her feet on the pillow instead of her head...) and how she misunderstands everything. I don't think the book is spectacularly well written, but my kids could never get enough of it and often they were laughing out loud. Good enough for me.
