Profile: Pippi Longstocking

Suggestion by me, who couldn't stop thinking of that name while reading the book to a certain five-year-old.


  1. I would've gone with Karlsson. Much more famous, for one thing. And much more obvious, for another. A short, fat, extremely opinionated man who is obsessed with food and sometimes feels guilty about not visiting his mother? Come on! The profile writes itself!

  2. In the English-speaking world, Pippi is much more famous than Karlsson. It's not even close. His books are not even sold in America. Sad...

  3. Since she got the strength similar to Samson and nobody knows why- who knows, she could be.
