Well, Pippi is a favorite of many I know and I own one of her many adventures but I found this one at the library and it is cute too. More pictures than the older book I had. It always throws me though how strong Pippi is and how carefree she is - she is definitely in another world. :) If you like Pippi you'll like this book, they go on a picnic and have a scrubbing vacation and she rides a bull till he drops. Great fun!
