Title: Pippi Goes On Board
Series: Pippi Longstocking
Author: Astrid Lindgren
Rating: 3 of 5 Stars
Pippi and her two little friends have adventures at the Fair, on a deserted Island and eventually with her father, the Cannibal King.
A fun story with each chapter being a little story on its own.
This is the type of book I would love to read to kids to awaken their interest in reading. It is short and well within their attention spans, funny and humorous and most of all, it is about kids their age.
When I think of a “children’s book”, this is what I envision. And as an adult, it might not be the greatest of literary fare, but it was good for an afternoon’s read.
