#HollyJollyReading Day 13: Pippi Long #Stocking can not be contained within the pages. She is much too expansive, too larger than life – for her to fit into a full page spread as portrayed by Lauren Child. My full review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-jv1

Pipi makes me laugh! I want a horse to live on my porch!She‘s confident and a bit absurd,but always makes everything fun.To escape the moment and share her adventures again was a pleasure.

HBD to Astrid Lindgren!

I first discovered Pippi as a movie, I watched the new adventures of Pippi Longstocking as a kid on repeat and was a fully fledged adult before I found, read and loved the books!

I stumbled upon an excellent movie on Amazon Prime yesterday about Astrid Lindgren - author of Pippi Longstocking.

I had no idea that Lindgren was a single, teenage mother. What she went through and overcame makes for a very inspiring movie.

I don't remember reading Pippi when I was growing up and I don't think I read it to my son but I do have fond memories of the 1960s TV show. The copy I checked out was illustrated by Lauren Child who illustrated the Charlie and Lola series which I did read and watch with my son. Pippi's story is timeless. It is still fresh to read about a precocious child who gets into all sorts of trouble and adventure. #1001books

Pippi long-stocking by Astrid Lindgren is a modern fantasy book that was published in 2005. This book is about Tommy and his sister Annika who have a new neighbor. The new neighbors name is Pippi Longstocking. She has crazy red pigtails, no parents to tell her what to do. She had a horse that lives on her porch, and a flair for the outrageous that leads her to adventure.

Apparently embroidery hoops are a thing. I made one for my daughter when she graduated HS & she has it hanging in her dorm room. She asked me for a few more for Christmas & picked this Pippi Longstocking quote out. I‘ve always related to free spirited Pippi with her red hair and love of the sea and adventure!

AmyG They are a thing. My son‘s fiance made tiny ones for his sisters. This one is lovely. 12mo
Reviewsbylola This is adorable! 12mo
Valink @AmyG I just started embroidering last year. I was surprised to see my daughter‘s suite mate with a few embroidery hoops hanging on her wall too. My daughter likes the floral ones best, but this was my favorite of the patterns she picked. 12mo

If I was 8 or 9, I'd absolutely love Pippi and I did love the film growing up. As an adult, I can't stop thinking about why these Swedish adults are totally okay with a kid living alone with a horse and monkey. The Settergren's could have at least checked in on her more than to pick up their kids! Moral of this review: read Pippi as a kid, not a stuffy overprotective parent. 🤣

IamIamIam @Chelleo HAHAHA, me too!!! I feel like children's books today, especially middle grade reads, are so much more sophisticated than when we were kids. That could be because I didn't stray too far from Sweet Valley High or The Babysitter's Club, though. LOL 2y
