Pippi Longstocking is one of the most popular children's characters of all time and is still much loved by millions of children today. This anniversary edition of Pippi Longstocking in the South Seas will introduce Pippi and her adventurous spirit to a whole new generation of readers. Nine year old Pippi is an unusual and unpredictable character, she lives alone with a monkey, a horse, and no rules whatsoever! Every day is a crazy adventure with Pippi, but what else would you expect from the daughter of a swashbuckling pirate captain?! In this collection of stories Pippi and her friends, Tommy and Annika, set sail for the Canny Canny Islands, where Pippi's father is king. They explore secret caves, and play marbles with real pearls. Luckily the pirates and sharks they meet are no match for Pippi Longstocking!

MEDIA REVIEWS
Generations of children have grown up loving these wonderful stories about the invincible girl with the unforgettable name. * Manchester Evening News *
I read this book to my son (aged just 5). He laughed so much that he fell off the bed! * Amazon reviewer *
I don't know who is enjoying this book more - my six year old son or myself. Pippi is a feisty character with a touch of the superhero about her and is as appealing to me now as she was when I was a kid. * Amazon reviewer *
Funny, charismatic Pippi is the person every small child wants to be . . . Magical Stuff. * Frances Perkins, Dorset Society *
Pippi is in the great tradition of children's protagonists who subvert the adult world, whether by questioning it, like Alice, or simply throwing it into chaos, like Dr Seuss's Cat in the Hat. * Sean French, The Guardian *
She's the greatest thing since sliced bread and twice as perky. For a fabulous romp through the increasingly ridiculous, I more than recommend this quirky spunky fan-freakin'-tastic book. It hasn't aged a jot. * Amazon reviewer *
It's great to see that the Pippi Longstocking books have been updated with illustrations (including new covers) by Tony Ross * Parents In Touch *
