What an absolutely crazy girl Pippi is and such adventures. No fear, no knowledge of manners, unrealistically strong and well, I just don't know what I think of it. Pippi does a lot of good things, she is friends with the neighbor's kids. Those kids love her because she follows no rules. Read this one only if you are going to take the time to explain she is an extreme and not an example to follow. I know Pippi is considered more of a classic but I really take precautions when I read her.
