Pippi Longstocking Study Guide


Pippi Longstocking

by Astrid Lindgren

Tommy and Anika wish someone would move in next door, someone with a playmate for them, but they have no idea of the adventures in store when Pippi becomes their new neighbor. They've never known anyone like her!

Barbara's Notes: Boys and girls alike will marvel at Pippi's strength and laugh at her antics. Each chapter is actually a short story, allowing us to investigate story writing in general, and tall tales in particular. (Grades 4, 5)
