Pippi Longstocking by Horsman Style: 8811 Size: 11 inch dressed doll
Based on the Books by Astrid Lindgren
Pippi Longstocking (Swedish Pippi Langstrump) is a fictional character in a series of children's books by Swedish author Astrid Lindgren and adapted into several films and television series. Pippi was named by Lindgern's then 9 year old daughter Karin, who requested a get-well story from her mother one day when she was home sick from school. Lindgren's 9 year old heroine Pippi is unconventional, assertive, and has superhuman strength, being able to lift her horse one-handed without difficulty. She frequently mocks and dupes adults she encounters, an attitude likely to appeal to young readers; however, Pippi usually reserves her worst behavior for the most pompous and condescending of adults.
The first three Pippi Longstocking books were published from 1945 to 1948, with an additional series of six books published in 1969–1975. Two final stories were printed in 1979 and 2000. The books have been translated into 64 languages.
