"If you hear the author’s name Astrid Lindgren, what springs to mind? Yep, thought so. Pippi Longstocking, the red haired girl with enormous strength, living on her own with just a monkey and horse for company and a pirate captain father.
But there is so much more to Astrid Lindgren, the famous Swedish writer. Astrid Lindgren has written so many more novels but most of them pale into insignificance thanks to the worldwide success of Pippi Longstocking.
