Description

It was followed by two sequels, Pippi Goes on Board and Pippi in the South Sea. Ms. Lindgren had a long, prolific career, writing more than 100 picture books, poems, short stories, plays, screenplays, and novels. In 1958, she won the Hans Christian Andersen Medal, the highest international award in children's literature.
