Publisher's Summary

Tommy and his sister Annika have a new neighbor, and her name is Pippi Longstocking. She has crazy red pigtails, no parents to tell her what to do, a horse that lives on the porch and a pet monkey named Mr. Nilsson. Whether Pippi's scrubbing her floors, doing arithmetic or stirring things up at a fancy tea party, her flair for the outrageous always seems to lead to another adventure.
©1945 Astrid Lindgren; 1950, 1978 The Viking Press (P)1998 Random House, Inc., Listening Library, an Imprint of the Random House Audio Publishing Group

Critic Reviews

Still works for today's kids--even boys!

It's hard to find good audiobooks for kids 5-7 years old. Picture books don't work on audio, and most chapter books are still a little hard for them to follow. Pippi Longstocking was already a decades-old book when I read it as a child in the mid 1970's, but my six-year-old son seems to like it just fine. We listened to it in the car on a long family trip, and we all enjoyed it. Pippi's wacky adventures, super strength, defiance of social norms (she doesn't go to school!) and good heart (she protects the weak kids from the bullies) apparently have timeless appeal.

A Classic Tale of the Strongest Girl in the World

Known for her bright red pigtails and her super human strenth, Pippi Longstocking is a beloved classic book enjoyed by children and adults alike. You won't believe what she does in her adventures

I especially liked the way Esther Benson narrated the story with giggles,. coughing, and other things used in the dialogue. The Listening Library version of Pippi Longstocking is a must-have for literature lovers.

Pippi, of course.

It was a really fun story, with a few serious moments, like the party. Made me remember being a child who didn't fit in.

Absolutely. My girls fell in love with Pippi after listening to the story. They have gone to the library and checked out more Pippi books.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Since the Pippi books are limited, we may listen to another Trixie Beldon book.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

n/a

Great narration

The narration was just about perfect but, Pippi herself gets awfully tiresome. Was happy to finish.
