Pippi Fixes Everything

Astrid_PFEPublished in Swedish as Pippi Ordnar Allt Och Andra Serier in 2010, the text was originally from 1957-1959.  Pippi Fixes Everything was translated by Tiina Nunnally and illustrated by Ingrid Vang Nyman.

Again, this is a collection of older Pippi stories that have been told and retold in many formats at this point.  I’m grateful that I read the novels first so I could enjoy the surprise and depth of those stories.  I find the brevity of the comic format just makes me homesick for the true versions that Astrid Lindgren wrote.  Comic book fans may love it.  This is a fun book.  It’s just not my cup of tea.
