Congrats Pippi!

‘Now let’s celebrate’, Pippi shouted, as she got back on her feet. ‘Let’s celebrate until we raise the roof of Villa Villekulla.’

For 75 years Astrid Lindgren’s fictional character Pippi Longstocking has entertained, astonished, questioned and provoked audiences all over the world. Pippi is adored by children, and people of all ages consider her a role model and a symbol for independence and anti-authoritarianism to this day. Her liberal and free-spirited character has made an impact far beyond the world of children’s books.

How much do you know

about Pippi Longstocking? 


Astrid Lindgren’s global impact is without precedent. No Swedish author has been translated into as many languages as hers and the total sale of her books is currently calculated at approximately 165 million copies. Every year new foreign editions of her books are published, regardless of the fact that it’s more than 15 years since she passed away and will soon be almost 40 years since her last great story was published. 


Pippi of today is an initiative from The Astrid Lindgren Company in partnership with Save the Children supporting girls that are on the move. Pippi is one of the most recognizable characters in the world – and she is the embodiment of strength, resilience and positivity. And today, as was the case 75 years ago, many girls are forced to leave their homes – and move not only to new cities but also to new countries.
