It was Pippi Longstocking’s 75th birthday on May 21st 2020!
Bex chatted to the grandson of its author, Astrid Lindgren.
Pippi was named by Lindgren’s daughter Karin, who asked her mother for a get-well story when she was off school.
Pippi is red-haired, freckled, and superhumanly strong! She’s able to lift her horse one-handed!
Daughter of a buccaneer captain, Pippi doesn’t want to grow up, and is full of adventures.
