Additional Notes

From The Publisher*The stories are funny and mischievous and ahead of their time. - USA Today, Best Comics of 2013 The world's strongest girl, Pippi Longstocking, is back with a fresh set of funny problems and even funnier solutions. In Pippi Won't Grow Up, she takes on school quizzes, refuses to be evicted from her home, and brings Tommy and Annika to visit the island where her father lives. Astrid Lindgren's expert storytelling and Ingrid Vang Nyman's vivid characters and bright colors make this eye-catching volume stand out.
Review Quote*"It's remarkable how universal the stories and art are." - School Library Journal "These are fun, colorful comics that are perfect for elementary school-age readers." - Comic Book Resources "Relying on bold blocks of color and bright, simple designs, the panels are midcentury children's art at its finest." - The Paris Review
