Pippi Longstocking

by Lindgren, Astrid

The wild and raucous character of Pippi Longstocking was created by Astrid Lindgren and named by her daughter, who was requesting a tale to be told while sick at home. The strong and unconventional Pippi has been an inspiration to many young girls ever since.

Pippi was first written and published in Sweden in the 1940s but translated into an American edition in 1950. The story of Pippi has been censored in some translations to make her a bit more of a "respectable young lady," while her anti-authoritarian outlook was accepted more readily in other countries. Some of the more modern editions have modified some of the insensitive cultural stereotypes used in the original text.

"A rollicking story of Pippi, who lives without any grownups in a little house at the edge of the village. The matter-of-fact ways in which her absurd adventures are related is one of the chief charms of this story." - The Horn Book

First Edition Identification

First published in Sweden by Rabén and Sjögren in 1945. Published in the US in 1950 by Viking, with illustrations by Louis Glanzman.
