Pippi is one of those books that kids will always love.
I didn't know about Pippi until I moved to the U.S. But I wanted to see what the story was all about, so I added it to my kids reading list.
And boy, they loved it! They were begging to keep reading--something I found funny, since I thought the story was a bit annoying.
But as far as the kids were concerned, the story was fabulous! They even pulled it out on a Saturday night to finish it, so they could watch the movie.
So... to each it's own. Perhaps the things I grew up with they might find annoying. All and all, it was a good story and I'm glad we read it.
