Revisiting Old Favorites
I picked up Pippi Longstocking by Astrid Lindgren on a whim. I enjoyed all the Pippi books when I was a child. I guess I wanted to recapture the magic. After re-reading the 1st book, I know why I liked them so much--Pippi is outrageous, hilarious, and audacious. The humor of Lindgren's books remind me a lot of Polly Horvath's books. I do like a book that makes you laugh out loud while reading it.
