GeekDad on Pippi Longstocking: The Strongest in the World
I actually don’t know a lot about Pippi Longstocking other than the red pigtails and that there are a couple kids’ books about her … but this is actually a comic book! There were a series of comics that had never been published in North America, and now Drawn & Quarterly has this collection of them, newly translated into English by Tiina Nunnally. Pippi is this mysterious little girl who shows up in an abandoned house on her own–and she’s incredibly strong. This collection is nearly 150 pages of short comics vignettes, and a new way to get acquainted with Pippi.
