Pippi Won’t Grow Up

Astrid_PWGUThis is another Pippi comic book.  Its original name was Pippi Vill Inte Bli Stor Och Andra Serier.  It was published in 2011 but the text is from 1957-1959.  It was translated by Tiina Nunnally with pictures by Ingrid Vang Nyman.

Of all the Pippi comic books, I think this is the absolute best, probably because the stories are the ones that don’t get told as often.  There is much time spent in the south seas, which feels like a rare treat.  And while the stories feel short and jumpy, I found myself longing less for the novel versions of the stories than I have while reading previous comic books.

Also, Pippi is adorable.
