Pippi Longstocking (World of Astrid Lindgren) Reviews

'Pippi Longstocking may have debuted in 1945, but she feels like a very modern heroine: independent and spirited, underpinned by kindness and warmth' * The Bookseller *
'If Pippi met Voldemort she'd make mincemeat out of him and then, because she's a generous, forgiving soul, sit him down and feed him ginger snaps.'
I love how unconsciously rebellious she is. She doesn't care about rules, she cares about people * Alicia Vikander *
