Pippi Longstocking Goes Aboard: Flagship Gift Edition

Author(s): Astrid Lindgren; Lauren Child (Illustrator)


This Flagship Gift Edition illustrated by Lauren Child is a glorious celebratory tribute to the strongest girl in the world in her 75th anniversary year. Pippi Longstocking lives in Villa Villekulla with a horse, a monkey, and a big suitcase full of gold coins. Pippi and her friends Tommy and Annika have the best time together-going to the fair, buying ALL the sweets in the sweet shop, and getting shipwrecked for the weekend. But the fun might stop all too soon if Pippi agrees to go back to sea with her father.

Astrid Lindgren was born in 1907, and grew up at a farm called NAs in the south of Sweden. She began her writing career in 1944 after she won a children's book competition, with Pippi Longstocking published a year later. She published more than one hundred books in her lifetime and is still the most popular children's author in Sweden. Her books have been translated into more than sixty languages, and she received numerous honours and awards. Astrid Lindgren died in 2002. Ingrid Nyman (1916-1959) was a Danish illustrator, noted for her work on the Pippi Longstocking books of which she was the original illustrator.
