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.
“You understand Teacher, don't you, that when you have a mother who's an angel and a father who is a cannibal king, and when you have sailed on the ocean all your whole life, then you don't know just how to behave in school with all the apples and ibexes.”

💚 Mom reading to me 😢
💜 pulling weeds
💛 baby dolls, Lincoln logs and Lego-like blocks, Barbies, comic books
🖤 my favorites are my collection of winter/Christmas books because of the illustrations
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!
1. Loved Pippi since I was a tiny tot
2. Favorite is red. Least favorite is brown or pea green

"No, Fridolph, bother all this learning. I can't study anymore because I must climb the mast to see what kind of weather we're going to have tomorrow."
Astrid Lindgren, Pippi Longstocking
#LitsyClassics Day 2 Photo Challenge - Prompt for today was #Heroine 😁 I couldn‘t decide between Pippi or Anne of Green Gables. As a child I used to play both of those movies over and over and over again! ❤️😘😍
Thank you for the tag @Amy-Laura!
1) Harry Potter, Sherlock Holmes, Neverwhere, Pippi Longstocking, Outlander
2) vegetable stew (might be gross to some people, but homemade, using my granny's recipe, it's the best)
3) The Knick, The Nightmanager
#Booked2018 season two ✅
#EmojiMadness Day 31: Today‘s 🧦 prompt naturally reminded me of Pippi - these photos were taken while my 16 year old girl and I were book hunting in Bergen. Norli, one of their popular retail bookstores, has this mural of Pippi on their wall. Naturally, we had to have our photo taken.
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. 🤣
Pippi is independent, strong, generous, kind-hearted, tells good stories and bakes great cookies. And lives with her horse and her monkey. What more do you want?
This book is a joy. Bonkers fun, beautifully illustrated by Lauren Child. This is a #childhoodfavorite of almost all of you (especially @Simona ) but I'd never got round to reading it before so read for #booked2018

The other day, our @Simona gave me many reasons why I should read Pippi Longstocking. So I took myself off to the library to find a copy.
An old friend of mine was running things today (we were at primary school together ** years ago!) & she promptly announced this was her #childhoodfavorite, & showed me a photo of her Dad's shed, which had a Villa Villekulla sign on the door, from when she was tiny.
Will have to read this for #booked2018 now!
I have to share this - very colorful (and cool) endpapers in my current read. Different patterns and different colors at the beginning and end of a book, I've never seen that before and I ❤️❤️❤️❤️it.
1. Tagged-I was obsessed with Pippi Longstocking for a short period

3. McDonald‘s Becca my mom hardly ever took us
So, I know I said I was going to work on catching up on current reads today, but then I spent part of this afternoon rereading this fun book. It‘s one of the only children‘s books I‘ve noticed in the #1001books list, it is on my shelf, and it has been many years since I‘ve read it.
