    Me encanta Pippi y sus aventuras. Además sus páginas están repletas de buen humor y chascarrillos cómicos que funciona tanto para niños como para no tan niños. Langstrump o Calzaslargas es un personaje que me provoca mucha ternura además de ser una revolucionaria total. Seamos todos un poco Pippi en la vida y la disfrutaremos más.

    Pippilotta Delicatessa Windowshade Mackrelmint Ephraim's Daughter LongstockingIf you loved Pippi as a kid, you probably had that memorized. My sister and I used to repeat it to each other frequently. Very useful for annoying the older siblings. With adulthood came the memory dump of all nonessential information, but as soon as I started re-reading the book it all came back to me. Maybe I should give the sibs a call and recite it, just to remind them how lucky they are to have me as a little sister. I really envied Pippi Longstocking when I was about ten years old. What kid wouldn't? These are the things that made me jealous:1)She lives alone in her very own house.2)She has a horse living on her veranda.3)She has a pet monkey named Mr. Nilsson. 4)She doesn't have to go to school.5)She's uncommonly strong--stronger than the strongman at the circus. She can even lift her own horse.6)She has a suitcase full of gold coins that never seem to run out.7)She says whatever she wants to say, and gets away with it. (She's really quite obnoxious and rude, which I never noticed as a kid.)This volume contains three Pippi books, but I only read the first two. One chapter into the third book, I was ready to move on to something else. When I was a child I strongly favored the first of the Pippi books, and that preference still stands. I was never as fond of Pippi in the South Seas, although I do love looking at the illustrations.

    Číst Pipi v dospělosti je zážitek. Číst ji se svými malými dětmi a sledovat, jak historky o nezkrotné holčičce prožívají ony, je k nezaplacení. Nikdy by mě nenapadlo, že se mé tříleté dceři složitá Pipi zalíbí víc než jakákoliv klasická pohádka, já ji četla až někdy v jedenácti letech a pokládala jsem ji ještě donedávna za knihu pro starší děti. Chyba lávky! Lindgrenová dokázala psát tak geniálně, že si její příběhy užije snad každá věková kategorie.

    Pippilotta Delicatessa Windowshade Mackrelmint Efraim's Daughter Longstocking moves into the Villa Villekulla after her sea captain father is lost at sea. Not lost precisely, as in dead, just lost as in Pippi believes he is now a Cannibal King on a South Seas island. Pippi, as she is known, lives with her monkey friend Mr. Nilsson and discovers a horse living on her porch. When the neighbors, Tommy and Annika, good little children, meet Pippi, their world changes. Life suddenly gets a lot more colorful and exciting whenever Pippi is around! This three-in-one volume contains the three original stories Pippi Longstocking, Pippi Goes on Board andPippi in the South Seas.I remember really liking these books when I was 10-11ish. I also liked the movie version and I know my niece did too. As we both dressed as Pippi for Halloween, many years apart, I'm taking her to see a Pippi Longstocking ballet! I thought I would refresh my memory by rereading the books. I probably should have let my happy memories stand because after many years and adulthood, the stories don't quite hold up. Pippi is outrageous! Without much adult supervision, she doesn't have anything in the way of manners or any idea of anything practical and normal. She tells big fat whoppers at the drop of a hat- but at least she knows she's lying. Her fibs often contain outrageous untruths about foreign countries. By the end of the series though this goes from stereotyping to what the reader understands is Pippi's way of telling stories. Tommy and Annika are normal, upright, proper children until Pippi comes along. Pippi rolls out cookies on the floor, lets her animal friends live inside (in this world apparently no one needs a bathroom/outhouse/backyard), lies a lot, doesn't have a bedtime, does whatever she feels like , is the strongest girl in the world and is pretty much crazy! The final book does veer into slightly ethnic stereotyping of Pacific Islanders. (They're cannibals but there's no mention of what a cannibal is, they have a white chief to rule them, they have names like Moana but no actual culture). The plot is pretty silly and leaves a lot to be desired.However, Pippi is such a fun and likable character. She has a heart of gold and is very generous. I love the tricks she devises to give charitably to Tommy and Annika, as well as the children who haven't any money. Her adventures are a lot of fun and very appealing for young children. Pippi represents the ultimate kid fantasy-being left alone to do exactly as she pleases. This may bother adults who know children need structure, but kids love Pippi's boundless life. Pippi also knows right from wrong and gives rude adults and would-be bad guys lessons they will never forget.My favorite is the first book. It introduces Pippi and her outrageous behavior. Each chapter is episodic so can be read aloud or by independent readers. I got swept away on a breathless Pippi adventure one chapter at a time. I love the circus episode and the way she "entertains" burglars. In the second book, my favorite chapter is when Pippi goes shopping. It shows what a kind and generous girl she really is. I wanted to be a neighborhood child too! The final two chapters made me kind of sad. I grew attached to Pippi just as Tommy and Annika did! I did not like the illustrations in this book. Pippi didn't look like the Pippi I remember from my childhood. She looked too cartoonish. I also don't think her hair was red enough! I always pictured her with bright orangey red hair. I remember only black and white line drawings like this and of course the moviesThis volume includes a very interesting life story of Astrid Lindgren with photos. I want to read more about her!

    I recently finished reading these three Pippi books to my seven and four year old boys. I was worried that it would be outdated or boring or demonstrate too much bad behavior. My seven year old was worried that it would be too girly. I'm happy to report that we all loved these books. After the first chapter, the boys were running to bed every night with the book, begging for another chapter. I loved Pippi so much. She really loves her friends and does all sorts of big and little unseen things to make their lives happy and full of magic. I wanted to be more like her in that way. Of course, Pippi does mischievous things too, but only to be fun and silly, never mean-spirited. She has lots of fun adventures, just the kind of things kids want to do. It's a wonderful fantasy for children that haven't yet been spoiled by our fast-paced world.

    i gave this three stars* because it includes "pippi in the south seas" and i remember that one being weird around race. i can't remember if "pippi goes on board" has those same elements. i love pippi for beating up cops and robbers, washing her floor with sponges strapped to her feet, playing inside a hollow log, sleeping with her feet on her pillow, and making the uptight mom next door have a hissy fit because she doesn't know how to behave like a "lady." but her encounters with people in the south seas leave something to be desired. *i bumped it up to four because the good parts are so very good and i dont want to be mistaken for someone who doesn't understand the joys of pippi.

    Pippi is such an enchanting character. She's refreshingly peculiar and she owns up to it. She is an unlikely heroine who has a heart for adventure, justice and goodwill. I appreciate that her imagination is rich, that her spirit is strong, and that her creativity is endless. Without question, I have enjoyed reacquainting myself with her stories.

    I wasn't a big fan of Pippi when I was little, but this time around I had so much fun reading this book! Pippi is undisputably crazy (eating death cup mushrooms and randomly shooting with her father's gun like it's no big deal) but she also has the kindest and most generous heart. I loved that.

    The first book out of the 3 was amazing! Brought back so many memories and made me smile when I pictured the scenes from the movie that was made. The second book was ok but by the time I made it to the third book I was kind of over reading it. If I had read it as 3 separate books instead reading it through as 1 it might have been better. Overall I enjoyed it though and REALLY want to watch the movie again.

    Imagine being nine years old and living on one’s own. However do you handle it? Well, it might help if you’re the strongest and richest girl in the girl. This week I reread The Adventures of Pippi Longstocking, which contains all three Pippi novels by Astrid Lindgren, as part of my ongoing study of literary anti-heroes. Pippi does whatever she desires, whenever she wants, which is a reason her character caused controversy when first introduced and to this day appears on lists of female anti-heroes. Yet there is no reason to worry she’ll corrupt anyone, for Pippi’s heart is always in the right place.What are some of Pippi’s more questionable habits? There is her penchant for making up stories, talking back to adults, and playing hooky from school. When Pippi first meets neighbors Tommy and Annika, she is walking backwards. In explaining her actions, Pippi declares, “Can’t a person walk any way she wants to? For that matter, let me tell you that in Egypt everyone walks that way, and nobody thinks it the least strange.” Annika reprimands her, saying it’s wicked to lie. Pippi looks sad and explains that she forgets once and awhile about the need to be honest. How could one expect anything different from a child whose mother is an angel, whose father is a cannibal, and who herself has sailed on the ocean all her life? As the two children become friends with Pippi, they come to realize that Pippi doesn’t always tell lies. When she does, it’s usually to weave a story for fun or make a point to a stranger. That leads me to her habit of talking back to adults. One day a stranger comes to Villa Villekulla and starts making plans to tear it down. When Annika and Tommy implore him to not chop down their old oak, he retorts that he doesn’t climb trees but also brushes off their concern because he intends to buy the place. When he finally starts a conversation with Pippi, he insults her red hair. Pippi in turn asks him, “Do you know in what way we are alike?” Then she tells him, “Both of us have big mouths. Except me.” Some might say that children should be seen and not heard; others might say the stranger deserved her back talk. Last, there is her truancy. Soon after Annika and Tommy meet Pippi, they convince her to attend school with them. The teacher tries to teach arithmetic to Pippi, but Pippi doesn’t understand how seven and five can equal twelve while at the same time eight and four can also equal twelve. Having tried to explain the rules of spelling to students, I can understand Pippi’s confusion: education doesn’t always make sense. Next, the teacher tries to teach reading to Pippi, but Pippi doesn’t understand how a letter that looks like a line with a fly speck over top can be an “i.” Both the teacher and Pippi decide that school is not the right choice for her. Is this ever a choice that should be made in the real word for children? No. Sometimes one has to just relax and enjoy a book’s fantasies.What are ways in which Pippi is the perfect role model? Pippi is always a good friend. Moreover, despite her somewhat flippant attitude with adults, she is kind and courageous. How is Pippi a good friend? She regularly surprises Annika and Tommy with treats, especially at the bottom of her oak tree. When her two friends are sick and stuck indoors, Pippi climbs outside their window and amuses them. In the third book, she invites them to vacation with her in the South Seas. When they return too late for Christmas, she decorates her house and blesses them with gifts. How is Pippi kind? During a shopping spree, a large crowd of children gather to watch her in the candy store. While the children’s parents probably don’t feel great about Pippi having fed their children enough candy to make them sick, the children sure learned to keep watch for her. Pippi next proceeds to the toy store, where she bought a little of everything to distribute to the children. Pippi isn’t just tender-hearted to children. One day, two burglars attempt to rob her. After they apologize, Pippi takes pity on them. She asks them to dance with her, then feeds them food, and even allows them to take one gold piece each. How is Pippi courageous? When the town’s Skyscraper caught on fire and trapped two children, Pippi tied a rope to a nearby tree and then placed a board between the tree and the house. Without blinking an eye, Pippi walked across the board and rescued the two boys.Few of us have the strength to attempt the latter feat. Most of us don’t have bags of gold that allows us to buy up the town. However, we can do right by our friends, stand up to mean people, and use our imagination to enrich our lives. In these ways, Pippi serves as an example of how to act. As for those other ways, well, isn’t it fun to pretend?

    Was soll man schon gross zu diesem Klassiker sagen?! Pippi ist ein Charakter für sich, ich liebe ihre unabhängige und starke Art, aber gleichzeitig nervt sie mich aber auch mit ihren ständigen Lügen und grossen Klappe. Was jedoch am meisten zählt ist ihr grosses Herz und wie sie sich stets um das Wohl der anderen auch kümmert. Lasst uns nur hoffen, dass Pippi weiterhin ein Vorbild für kleine wie grosse Kinder bleibt.. PS. Diese Illustrationen sind zum Teil schon urkomisch. Besonders kleiner Onkels Kopf sieht gar nicht nach Pferd aus. ;)

    Someone left this by the self-checkout machine at the library and I thought "Why not" and checked it out for a re-read. I owned at least the first book when I was a kid. (As a redhead and descendant of redheads ... yeah. It was probably inevitable.)On the one hand, I'm kind of blown away by Pippi's girl-hero qualities. I kept thinking she was very Peter Pan-ish (except that she wants to be a pirate instead of fighting them), and that was before I got to the end and read that the thing she wanted the most was to not grow up. On the other, I don't know if making Pippi a cannibal princess was the best choice. Sure, it's picturesque as hell and all that, but ... I mean, cannibals! A little voice in the back of my head was wondering if Lindgren knew what a cannibal was, or if it was a strange translation, or what. There also seemed to be some subtextual flirting with the idea of "These people are primitive, we're better than them" in places. if you are practicing politically correct parenting the first book is probably fine, but I don't know about the next ones. Speaking of translations, the third book had a different translator than the first two, and it seemed like in some places he added American idioms where they wouldn't have been. I remember liking the illustrations in the edition(s) that I had better than I liked these. But the little afterword which is a mini-biography of the author was kind of neat. (It had some cool related pictures, too.)In conclusion, if, like me, you wondered if "villekulla" meant anything, the answer seems to be "maybe." For more details, see this page. (Villa Villekulla is the name of the house where Pippi lived. You can see the one that was used for the movie and TV series here.)

    I'd like to recommend this book to my friend PJ, hopefully she will perfectly relate herself to Pippi. Here's to all life-enjoying-happy-go-lucky people out there!I myself, have read all stories on Pippi Longstocking back in the year 1990-1993. One long school holiday I recall, my parents went to Gramedia, and brought home a basket (literally a basket!) full of Astrid Lindgren's writings: Emil, Lotta, Madita, children of Bullerbyn, and of course, Pippi Longstocking. It was madness, I say. I finished all those (8) books within the first quarter of the vacation. Personally, I would go with Emil as my favourite yet this is not a page for any review on Emil. Aaand back on Pippi, I think Lindgren shows her truest sense of humor here. The what I call as a 'two-layers humor' where you spend the first layer to think the joke over and finally at the second layer, you'll just laugh. And mostly LOUD.Anyway, I kept those books with me for like almost 10 years until we moved out from our old house and my maid accidentally misplaced all those books and put them in one of those 'to-be-dumped-soon' boxes... (a moment of silence, please..)P.S: I don't know whether I've once told PJ about this, but she managed to assure the other friends of mine to collectively got me this as a bday present last year.. Big thanks, guys.. Got my childhood back a lil! ; )

    "I am the sea, and nobody owns me." Pippi Longstocking is an inspiring and rebel-like character, with amazing traits such as being able to lift a horse! Of course, this is a fictional book. Astrid Lindgren is a wonderful author, and when she had crafted this story while caring for her sick daughter, the idea sprouted into a wonderful collection of stories. In the first story, Pippi travels across the world with her father, but when he gets blown off the boat in a horrible storm, Pippi has to live by herself in Ville Villekulla, where she meets new friends and goes on extraordinary adventures. I think everyone should read this book because it teaches children how to be independent, all while having a great attitude and caring for others. This trilogy of Pippi Longstocking, Pippi Goes on Board, and a Pippi in the South Seas, is perfect for a boring day, when you just need to spice things up.

    Baca deh penggalan cerita di bawah :Pippi is an irrepressible, irreverent, and irrefutably delightful nine-year-old girl who lives alone (with a monkey) in her wacky house, Villa Villekulla. When she's not dancing with the burglars who were just trying to rob her house, she's attempting to learn the "pluttification" tables at school; fighting Adolf, the strongest man in the world at the circus; or playing tag with police officers. Pippi's high-spirited, good-natured hijinks cause as much trouble as fun, but a more generous child you won't find anywhere. I am a fan of Pipi, and really wish that i could have the same life as Pipi together with her monkey.Astrid Lindgren, penulis cerita anak pujaan gwe, selain Enid Blyton tentunya.I read a lot of her Book, and love them so much..

    Rebecca and I have spent many a too late school nights reading through the Pippi trilogy. It's nothing but fun. If you want a book that builds character, this probably isn't it, though you'd be hard-pressed to find a kinder soul than Pippi. I believe stories like these are perfect for children. Pippi is generous, fun, and just, qualities that I see in my own children. She doesn't have good manners, she can't read very well or do "pluttification", and she has a bad habit of lying (telling outlandish stories). She comes off hero, and wins the hearts of most of the people around her. Who cannot help but love this child, and really, any child who we spend any time with at all? I found this translation better than the one that I read when I was a kid.

    I only read Pippi Longstocking out of this anthology. I have been rereading books from my childhood and I remember my mother and I getting this from the library when I was in kindergarten or so. This book is a very strange book. Pippi is a girl who lives on her own (because her father is the king of the cannibals on an island somewhere). She has a lot of gold, so she bought her own house and a horse and she also has a monkey. She is extremely strong.I did not realize that this was translated. The book was very strange and I remember liking it better as a child. Perhaps my suspension of disbelief isn't as good as it used to be.

    I registered a book at! This set includes all three of Pippi Longstocking' s adventures. All three of them feature Pippi, the red haired girl who is strong enough to pick up her horse, and her two friends, a brother and sister. Pippi and her friends have wild adventures in the town where they live and at her ramshackle house with the tree that "grows" chocolate bars and/or sodas, depending on the day. All in all, they are fun reads for there's and younger (depending on reading ability).

    I used to wish I was Pippi, to be able to carry a horse, hang out on tropical islands, and have a monkey for a friend (although not named Mr. Nilsson). Although she doesn't act like a grown-up, she reminds us of the things that are really important in life. I have only read the first 3 books (I didn't know there were more), so when they all come in from the library, I'll post an update to this review (I'm not going to rate them all individually).

    Just finished reading this book to my boys who are 6 1/2. Three Pippi Longstocking books in one (Pippi Longstocking, Pippi goes abroad, Pippi in the South Seas). The boys loved it and it brought back a lot of childhood memories for me. It is nice to cuddle up with them and read on the weekend or after school to unwind and of course in the evenings and see how engulfed they get with the stories. They rather have had a Pippi story read to them than watch something on TV - long may it last!

    I never really liked the Pippi books, I was much more addicted to the original TV series with Inger Nilsson as Pippi.But as a character I really liked this rebellious little girl that managed quite nicely by herself in the world. Yes, she was sometimes sad that her parents weren't there, but as a whole I think she lived the dream many kids want to live. nrealistic? Oh, don't break my heart by mentioning reality.

    Zelfstandig, dapper, lief, vrolijk, scherp, waanzinnig sterk en onschuldig brutaal: Pippi Langkous is het ideale speelkameraadje en misschien wel een van de meest anarchistische personages uit de (kinder)literatuur. Zo zou je ook wel willen zijn! Maar in je hart weet je dat je eigenlijk meer lijkt op Pippi's brave en kleurloze vriendjes Tommy en Anneke. Ontzettend grappig, fris en lekker schoppend geschreven en terecht legendarisch kinderboek.
