Astrid Lindgren -- “I don’t want to write for adults. I want to write for readers who can perform miracles. Only children perform miracles when they read.” Pippi Longstocking is one of the most insane characters ever created by anyone!
One of my favorite childhood books. Time to revisit it! Pippi Longstocking (Swedish: Pippi Långstrump) is a 1945 children's novel by the Swedish writer Astrid Lindgren. Lindgren wrote the book for her daughter, who apparently was sick in bed.
