Pippi Longstocking

Pippi Longstocking - Astrid Lindgren A very charming book. It has a plot similar to The Cat in the Hat where two ordinary children have their lives turned upside down, by the arrival of a bizarre stranger, in this case Pippi.

There are lots of nice absurdities that are treated as matters of fact. The book is well written and entertaining, but it is really just a bunch of absurd adventures told in a charming manner.

Good, very charming, but not great.
