Pippi Långstrump

Fun with Pippi

Pippi Longstocking is a nine-year-old girl who one day arrives in the little town and moves into ‘Villa Villekulla’ all by herself. She has with her her monkey, Mr Nelson, and her horse, as well as a big bag full of gold coins. 

Pippilotta Provisionia Gaberdina Dandeliona Ephraimsdaughter Longstocking is a remarkable girl. Her Mum is an angel in heaven and her Dad is king of Canny-Canny Island in the South Seas – and what’s more she happens to be the strongest person in the world. Pippi doesn’t need any adults to help her; she’s absolutely fine on her own. She never needs to do anything she doesn’t want to do, just because someone told her to. And she doesn’t think much of people or things that don’t deserve to be thought of. Pippi is free.

‘Oh yes, time flies and before you know it you’re old, said Pippi. Come autumn I’ll be ten, and I suppose I’ll be past my prime then.’

‘I’m frecklier and prettier than ever before. I’ll be frankly irresistible, if this continues.’

Pippi, from Pippi Longstocking in the South Seas
