Pippi Longstocking (1950/1959)
By Astrid Lindgren
"Who will challenge Mighty Adolph, the World's Strongest Man, in a wrestling match?" cries the ringmaster.
Who else but Pippi? She lifts him high in the air and carries him around the ring, to the delight of all the children at the circus.
But then everything about Pippi is strange and wonderful and funny...
...Whether she's teaching two burglars to dance or murdering arithmetic in her one wild day at school.
Hold on to your hat - - and your sides.
Here comes Pippi Longstocking!
