    This time I am going to be THAT guy everybody hates The one that did not like a beloved children classic I can only say that I am not always bad and kicking puppies is not my favorite pastime I promise I will find something good to say about the book I also promise to buy a blackboard, write 100 times I have been a bad boy on it and put myself into a nearest shame corner Pippi Longstocking was an orphan although she did not think her father died when he was swept from a ship deck by a bi This time I am going to be THAT guy everybody hates The one that did not like a beloved children classic I can only say that I am not always bad and kicking puppies is not my favorite pastime I promise I will find something good to say about the book I also promise to buy a blackboard, write 100 times I have been a bad boy on it and put myself into a nearest shame corner Pippi Longstocking was an orphan although she did not think her father died when he was swept from a ship deck by a big wave She came into a quiet Swedish town where her father bought a home Short time later it turned out she was very independent, rich, did not suffer from excessive shyness at all, had no education to speak of and was very strong physically she favorite exercise was carrying her horse around She befriended neighboring kids Tommy and Annika The book talks about their games and adventures As I stated in the beginning I do not like the book much I love some other books of Astrid Lindgren In this case I cannot even justify my dislike by saying that I read it when I was too old as my first read was during my teens Was it still too old So during my first read I did not like the idea that there was not plot, strictly speaking just short stories with no connections between them I understand that this is exactly what Astrid Lindgren intended, but I do not have to like it.My adult reread revealed even bigger problem Pippi never had to face consequences for her crazy antics By looking around or reading news it is clear people around us have exactly the same problem they cannot take responsibility for their actions often blaming anything and everything else Free of consequences Pippi is not exactly the right role model here Yes, I realize that I sound very grown up and boring, but it is not any less true On the positive side kids around the world love the book It earned a status of a children classic One extra star to the rating is due just for this Only make sure you read it the first time before it is too late when you are around eight years old

    I recently finished reading these three Pippi books to my seven and four year old boys I was worried that it would be outdated or boring or demonstrate too much bad behavior My seven year old was worried that it would be too girly I m happy to report that we all loved these books After the first chapter, the boys were running to bed every night with the book, begging for another chapter I loved Pippi so much She really loves her friends and does all sorts of big and little unseen things to I recently finished reading these three Pippi books to my seven and four year old boys I was worried that it would be outdated or boring or demonstrate too much bad behavior My seven year old was worried that it would be too girly I m happy to report that we all loved these books After the first chapter, the boys were running to bed every night with the book, begging for another chapter I loved Pippi so much She really loves her friends and does all sorts of big and little unseen things to make their lives happy and full of magic I wanted to belike her in that way Of course, Pippi does mischievous things too, but only to be fun and silly, never mean spirited She has lots of fun adventures, just the kind of things kids want to do It s a wonderful fantasy for children that haven t yet been spoiled by our fast paced world

    I spent the entire summer and most of September reading this wonderful edition of Pippi Longstocking with my 10 year old daughter and I m so we spent the time to do it we laughed and laughed.

    Such fun, silly adventures The later stories get a little bit problematic regarding the island Pippi visits, and I wouldn t recommend the third book for contemporary child readers unless there was heavy guidance and conversation involved.

    Pippi is such an enchanting character She s refreshingly peculiar and she owns up to it She is an unlikely heroine who has a heart for adventure, justice and goodwill I appreciate that her imagination is rich, that her spirit is strong, and that her creativity is endless Without question, I have enjoyed reacquainting myself with her stories.
