The first Pippi Longstocking story was published in the autumn of 1945. From a world devastated by war, Astrid Lindgren wrote about a completely new type of girl character. A strong, kind, curious, anti-authoritarian, and playful girl who makes extraordinary things happen. With her mismatched stockings, carrot-coloured hair and freckly face, not to mention super-human strength and resilience, Pippi Longstocking has become a cultural icon.
