PIPPI LONGSTOCKING by Astrid Lindgren
IndieBound Description: 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 her porch, and a flair for the outrageous that seems to lead to one adventure after another!
My Thoughts: Another great classic that has aged very well. The description does not do justice to this book which is a cornerstone in children's literature! I remember my 4th grade (maybe 3rd grade) teacher reading this out loud to us in class. When she finished reading it, I went to the library and took it out to read all over again! My version is the same as the one my teacher read to me (I had to wear stripes in the photo in honor of the book, too.)
