Review by Publisher Summary 2

Pippi moves into in a house at the edge of a Swedish village with a horse, a monkey, a suitcase full of gold, and no grown-ups to tell her what to do. She has upside-down braids and is wild and funny and her crazy ideas have a way of making anything exciting! Naturally, the children next door, Tommy and Annika are curious about their new neighbor. The three children have the most rollicking adventures on their own, with horses and monkeys, the circus, and more!
