I happened to be reading this with my daughter at the same time I was rereading the Culture novel Consider Phlebas and I couldn't keep the two separate. Pippi just seems like the perfect member of the Culture, decent, headstrong, hedonistic, in love with her post-scarcity living, and a bit too flaky for her own good. All that led to this:

Jelas sekali meski buku ini bergenre anak-anak, tapi membacanya mesti dengan bimbingan orang tua. Tingkah dan cara bicara Pippi yang aneh (dan bagi pembaca terasa lucu) akan menjadi tidak lucu bila ditiru anak-anak.

Namanya, Pippilotta Viktualia Gorden Tirai Permen Efraimputri Langstrump, putri dari kapten Efraim Langstrump yang dikenal setan laut, dan kini menjadi raja orang hitam. Pippi tinggal sendirian di pondok Serbaneka. Dia tidak mempunyai ibu, dan Ayahnya terdampar di negeri Taka tuka. Te...more
Pippi Longstocking was my hero when I was a little girl. Come on: the strongest girl in the world? who's richer than God? and lives by herself? with a horse? and a monkey?


This is the book where Pippi goes on a picnic, gets shipwrecked, and is reunited with her father. I always get a lump in my throat at the end, whether I'm nine or twenty-nine ... or older.

The more I think about it, the more I realize that Pippi is a real feminist icon. She takes care of herself, she doesn't rely on...more
This is a little different from the first book. There's zaniness here too, but Pippi seems to be even more explicitly anti-authoritarian than before. Naturally I was well-pleased by this, especially when she rescued a horse that was being cruelly beaten by its driver, then made the driver carry his own cargo home under threat of a similar whipping. Beautiful stuff. I honestly think that kids can't learn any better lessons than "Have some dang empathy" and "Speak up for those what can't speak for...more

pipi is soo funny i love reading about pipi and her adventures.
"It's surely best for little children to live an orderly life, especially if they can order it themselves." This sums up Pippi's philosophy of life as she continues her adventures in a second installment. Not as good as the original Pippi Longstocking, but it still entertained my children and captured their imaginations. While the adventures in this book lack some of the hilarity of the first book in the series, Pippi's compassion and generosity are highlighted, which adds a more personal touch...more

Good, but didn't love it as much as the first book. My kids are still excited about the final Pippi book...
In this story Pippi's character progresses a lot. At the start she is her usual self. Saving people from tigers and bad men, making school days chaotic, treating all the kids to mounds of lollies and enjoying being shipwrecked with Tommy and Annika. Everyone automatically feels safe around her as there is nothing she can't do. It is when she goes to a fair that a little more about Pippi is revealed. It is when she is at the fair and watching a play that it is revealed that she might also suffer...more

Pippi lives at Villa Villekulla, her home in Sweden. She lives alone, without adult supervision, with only her monkey, Mr. Nilsson, and a horse who lives on the front porch. Her father had been a sea captain with whom Pippi had sailed, until he was blown overboard. While certain that he would one day return, Pippi, a very strong and independent child, has no problems living alone. Tommy and Annika are her neighbors who live next door. They are in awe of Pippi's experiences and sense of adventure...more

Saya tidak bisa ingat kapan pertama membaca kisah Pippi.
Yang jelas saya ingat adalah saya belum pernah memiliki buku ini sendiri.
Baru minggu lalu, di meja obral Gramedia (yang saat itu belum rusuh diserbu gerombolan GRI yang brutal).

Hal lain yang saya ingat, saat itu saya berpikir bahwa Pippi itu benar2 anak yang aneh. Aneh walau lucu.
Sebagai "anak yang tidak aneh", kala itu saya tidak bisa menemukan padanan Pippi pada teman2 yang ada di lingkungan saya. Dan kalau ada, saya mungkin akan berjara...more

Recommends it for: everyone!, pirate children, accordionists
this is the one where pippi takes tommy & annika on a trip to purposefully get shipwrecked! that's my all-time favorite pippi story. i have a tattoo of pippi from this chapter, where she is holding the bag of supplies in one hand & a comically over-sized revolver in the other. she packs an empty bottle so they can write a message in a bottle when they decide they're sick of being shipwrecked. she asks tommy to write, "help, we're shipwrecked & we haven't any snuff." tommy doesn't wan...more

I was pleasantly surprised to find that I rather enjoyed this book quite a bit more than the first.

In this book, Pippi, Tommy, and Annika have all sorts of adventures that really showcase Pippi's generosity, loyalty, and kindness. Her heart is as big as her physical strength!

I liked that when Pippi spent a day with Tommy and Annika's class, their teacher used the opportunity to instruct her in proper behavior (finally Pippi gets some guidance!), and Pippi really seemed to want to learn to be g...more

I remembered why I liked Pippi Longstocking books when I was a child. She was wild and crazy and weird and nonsensical.
These books are great for kids and preteens.
When you get older the stories are so strange that I don't think they are as much fun or enjoyable than when you were a child and the possibilities were endless.
CIP: none
Summary: Pippi lives by herself and has wild adventures with the children next door and from the village. One day an unexpected visitor arrives and offers to take her on an exciting voyage.

Review: Pippi lives every child's dream life: no parents, no bedtime, no school. She can do whatever she wants. And she does. This book will appeal to children ages 6-10 for all the reasons listed above. Their is excitement and silliness galore. However, as an adult going back to re-read it, I found m...more
I wanted to revisit the character Pippi as it is mentioned in "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" (in an interview with author Stieg Larsson)that she was created as an adult version of Pippi Longstocking (by Swedish author Astrid Lindgren written in 1950s). As a kid liked Pippi stories so thought I'd read to my granddaughter (age 6); she didn't seem interested so I read it. I can see why kids would like Pippi since she doesn't have to live with parents and has a chest full of gold coins and can bu...more
Gue ngga kebayang apa jadinya dunia kalo beneran ada anak ini.
Si Pippilotta Viktualia Rullgardina Krusmynta Efraimsdotter Långstrump (atau di Indonesia, dikenal juga sebagai Pippilotta Viktualia Gordentirai Permen Efraimputri Långstrump).

Buat gue, Pippi ini, unik. Bold, brave, idealis juga, pemberontak, liar, pokoknya, begitu hidup. She's so lively. Dan gue ngga tau, apakah jiwa seperti ini sudah ada dari sananya (bawaan genetis), atau pengaruh lingkungan? hahaha..

Bener-bener anak ini bikin gue...more
Pertama kalinya berkenalan dengan makhluk bernama Pippi. Unik. Ajaib. Liar. Menyebalkan. Sok tau. Bebas. Mungkin itulah beberapa kata yang cocok utk menggambarkan gadis kecil yang satu ini.

Nanti ditambahin lagi kalau kepikiran. Hehehe
cute, funny, typical Pippi Longstocking. [O how I used to wish I was her!!]
Breezy read, read in an hour or so.
For a younger audience.
both kids (7 and 10) adore this book -- the humor is appreciated more the older they get
chapters are much longer than the first pippi
just reading the adventure in the shipwrecked chapter alone is worthwhile
So crasy and cute.

~ Pippi Goes Aboard ~ (by Astrid Lindgren)

Pippi Longstocking still lives at Villekulla Cottage with her horse (on the porch) and monkey, Mr. Nelson.
She has her friends, Annika and Tommy, who live across from her and together they have the most wonderful adventures...

In this book they go 'Shopping', on a 'School Outing', to the Towns Fair (where Pippi saves the day!), and get 'shipwrecked', and a Farewell Party.

Pippi saves the day most of the time and it's never boring with her :D
It was a more intense read than the first Pippi for the kids. The chapters were just that much longer it was hard to get through one in our usual space for chapter books over lunch. The dread that was building in the last three chapters was palpable, and the jokes breaks where fewer then. I think we'll wait a while before we get the next book in the series, since Pippi is getting older and we aren't.

Oh, and why was the title translated as "Pippi Goes on Board" when the chapter was translated "Pi...more
Too emotional.
Slightly different than the original, but still wonderfully fresh and zany, I found Pippi geht an Bord to be a delightful read. I thought Pippi's antics were even more entertaining, and perhaps slightly more real (though still absurd in a way only Pippi can be). The end chapters fell a bit flat for me(view spoiler) but the ending was wonder...more

Ini pertama kalinya baca Pippi, dan sukses dibuat kaget dengan "atraksi" nakal dan eksentrik Pippi. Awal baca sempet yang ber-"hah?hah?" ria, tapi lama-lama terbiasa juga. Walaupun gak sampe bikin ketawa, ceritanya cukup imajinatif. Setiap baca bagian Pippi bisa beli segala macem dengan sepeti uang emasnya, rasanya ngiri, enak banget ngambil duit kayak ngambil cemilan.

Oiya, kalo buku ini dibaca anak-anak, kayaknya harus dengan bimbingan orang tua :P
lagi iseng ke gramedia fatmawati,,eh nemu buku 5000-15.000an,,,trus tiba2 ngeliat ini buku...
wah,,jadi inget dulu pas masih sd,,,(kemana ya buku pippi si kaos kaki panjang gw??)
langsung beli deh,,en ga sabaran pas pulang langsung di baca..
masih takjub sama tingkah laku pippi,,yg pasti Astrid Lindgren jago banget bikin buku yg timeless...
dibaca kapan aja masih tetep nyambung...
whua,,,jadi pengen tinggak di pondok serbaneka
as a sequel to this first book, this continues pippi's adventures with annika and tommy primarily during their summer holiday. when you read, you discover an oak tree that grows pop and chocolate bars, a maniacal round of follow the leader, and (amongst other things) her tall tales about her father, the cannibal king. in this book, pippi emerges as a character of fine quality and not so much the precocious 9 year old. good fun!
Xiao-Ling and I read all the Pippis together. She loves Pippi and calls her "Pippi the Long Stock." When I braid her hair we hold the plaits up at a 45-degree angle and yell, "PIP-PEE LONGSTOCKEEENG!" i took the kids to see the Pippi Longstocking musical at the Strand Theater in Lakewood. We loved it, but my favorite thing of all was the theater itself, which is about a hundred years old and totally preserved inside and out.

I enjoyed the book thoroughly. I'd loved the films as a child (okay, still do as an adult) and it was so much fun to finally read one of the books. I have the other two books which I will read when my current ring and ray TBR pile goes down.

Pippi is the sort of child that anyone would want as a friend. She's head strong, delightfully silly and wonderfully over confident. Plus she owns a horse and a monkey!
