Pippi Longstocking, one of the world’s favourite children’s characters and creation of Swedish author Astrid Lindgren, was in fact imagined by Astrid’s daughter Karin while she was ill. Pippi’s mischievous character and disregard for authority caused quite a stir back in 1945 when the book was published because children’s literature was then considered a means for educating and setting moral examples. But that hasn’t affected the global success of the novel, which has subsequently inspired numerous film adaptations. Pippi Longstocking, a girl of superhuman strength, arrives in a Swedish town with her monkey, horse, and a bag of gold coins. There she befriends two children, Annika and Tommy, astounds the local adults with her unusual behaviour and experiences many adventures.
