You can acknowledge Pippi Longstocking as a character in a book, or as a real woman who lived somewhere in the eighteen or nineteen hundreds. She is wonderful, in both ways!
I have read almost all the books about her. I think she is crazy but in a good way. I like how she considers things, and how she does other things. Like how she cleans her kitchen floor. And the games she plays, like Don't Touch The Ground.
I was so attached to her, last year, that I tied my hair in braids almost everyday, I played Don't Touch The Ground when I was bored, and I even cleaned the kitchen floor the way she cleaned it! But I think she is still a wonderful role model for kids, and she is still mine. (Although I don't braid my hair anymore)Thank goodness today we have library, so I could check out one of her books.
Anyway, one of the best things about Pippi Longstocking (the fictional character) is that she first was created from a story for Astrid Lingren's (the author) daughter, when she was sick with pneumonia. Her daughter told her to tell her a story, and when Mrs. Lingren asked who it should be about, her daughter said: "Pippi Longstocking!"
So, Mrs. Lingren's story started out only for her daughter, and when she got better, she told her friends, and soon it spread out, so that Astrid Lingren simply decided to write them down as stories.
I really recommend the book Pippi Longstocking (or should I call her: Pippilotta Delisitta Windowshade Mackrelmint Efraim's daughter Longstocking) It is found in the library. I'm sure that everyone who reads about her will be amazed by what she does. Have fun reading!
