«Un tempo avevo paura di rimanere in casa da sola, ma ora non più, perché Pippi è con me» ha scritto ad Astrid Lindgren una bambina giapponese. Pippi Calzelunghe è infatti un libro conosciuto in tutto il mondo e tradotto in 65 lingue, di cui l’ultima dell’elenco è lo zulu. Anche voi troverete in Pippi una compagna forte, allegra, furba e ricchissima: vive sola a Villa Villacolle e non ha paura di niente: sta benissimo anche senza genitori, perché così nessuno le dice quando andare a letto o le insegna le buone maniere, che non servono a nulla se non si è veramente generosi. E Pippi, appunto, lo è. Leggete le sue avventure e vi sentirete, come lei, tanto forti da sollevare un cavallo.
«I bambini fanno miracoli quando leggono, prendono le nostre frasi e danno loro una vita che, di per se stesse, non hanno».

I used to feel connected to Pippi as a kid. Because I had red/orange hair ;-) I was even called Pippi Langkous (the Dutch translation) sometimes then.. I swear I have this photo of myself as a kid, spitting image then, now my hair is white/orange mixed, I'm sure Pippi would have the same as an older Leggi tutto
I think Swedish schools today are far too influenced by Astrid Lindgren's most famous character! There is not a single person in this country who doesn't know the story of how Pippi Långstrump started school. Her friends Tommy and Annika told her that they get to have a "Christmas break", and Pippi, Leggi tutto
[Original review, Sep 4 2018] I'm trying to improve my miserable Italian, and when we were in Italy a couple of weeks ago I bought a bunch of children's books, intending to use my normal method of just reading them without a dictionary and picking things up. So far, it's working well. I loved Il Mago Leggi tutto
Since I love Scandinavian authors and review many Swedish and Norwegian novels, I'm often asked what the best language is if you're planning to read one in translation. It's early days yet, but I'm starting to feel more and more certain that the answer is German. Just like Komet im Mumintal , whi

Published in English as Pippi Longstocking Where do I even start? Should I open with a standard guilty disclaimer for disliking yet another childhood staple? How about a shameful admission that reading between the lines has never worked for me? Or perhaps a simple statement about being too old to enj Leggi tutto
The Girl With The Dragon Boots Having read The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, where Lisbeth is identified as a real world Pippi, I have been planning to read the supposed inspiration for a long time. For the first few chapters, it is hard to imagine how Larsson could have based the character of Lisbeth Leggi tutto
