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

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.

Great version of a classic story!

When she makes 500 cookies and Pippi the Thing Finder.

Pippi, of course.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

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.

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.

One of the most beloved classic characters from Scandinavian children’s literature.

Pippi Longstocking has been one of my favorite literary characters even during my adulthood. Her super human strength and bright red pigtails are two things that make her so iconic. Of course, I have also read Pippi Goes on Board and Pippi in the South Seas, which I recommend you check out from your local library.
Believe it or not, Pippi has also evolved from books to stage and screen. She has been featured in several movies and on television—live-action and animated. A remarkable character, Pippi Longstocking is sure to be a delight with anyone young and old.

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.

Unbelievably amazing Pippi ha ha Ha

This was the Beeeest!!! Book ever I congratulate the author of this and this is the best book I have ever heard thank you thank you thank you. This book was so incredibly funny to the very point when Tommy and Annika meet Pepe to the very end when Pepe has a quiet scary party and she fires pistols in to the ceiling personally as a parent I would never give my children pistols and I wouldn't allow as Tommy and Anika's parents had my children to have pistols in the house. But this book was perfectly Excellent thank you so much. Yours sincerely pig widget.

plutification/priceless

i used to own this on cassette tape as a child and although i didn't have a good childhood ,this tape always comforted me and let me close my eyes and escape to villa villa kula ,im 32 now i enjoy at night with my 2 daughters and they fall right to sleep , i use it as my escape from this world when i get overwhelmed with adult stuff and drift away to Esther's voice and the wonderful story by Astrid, they'll never know how much they got me through just a simple well written and very well read story can do for a person this combo can never be repeated thank you to both of these ladies together they're a powerful energy my inner child sends lots of love. i literally only got this app for this audio book it used to be on you tube now ts not free anymore but i would pay a million to have this in my life ,its priceless!! thank you amzon as well !! love the app finding more books for my kids too
