1950 PIPPI LONGSTOCKING Astrid Lindgren Hardcover DJ

Regular price $215.00

This is a 1950 book club edition of Pippi Lonstocking by Astrid Lindgren and it was  published by the Viking Press. While it is denoted a book club edition on the inside flap of the dust jacket, it may be ex-lib based on a sticker that was removed off the front cover. The dust jacket is laminated with a small blemish on the front. For added protection, it has been placed in an archival quality clear sleeve. The dust jacket has tape on the underside, reinforcing  the spine, and there appears to be a name written in pencil. The boards, binding, and interior pages are sound. There aren't any obvious signs of inscriptions, marginalization, or dog-eared pages. Slight soiling on FEP.

With a suitcase of gold coins, Pippi Longstocking maintains an independent lifestyle without parents. Pippi's mother died soon after her birth, and her father  went missing at sea. The books are anti-authoritarian, with an undercurrent of feminism which is why Pippi Longstocking often ends up on banned book lists. Pippi is a role model for children and a feminist icon. Pippi is a self-sufficient, strong, and resilient girl who doesn't let stereotypes or prejudice define her. She's also kind, fair, and accepting, and she often uses nonviolence to solve conflicts.  If you celebrate the freedom to read, Pippi is a wonderful addition to your library.
