Pippi Longstocking returns to fix everything in the second volume of comics written by the series creator, Astrid Lindgren, and illustrated by the original Pippi artist, Ingrid Vang Nyman. It is Pippi's birthday, which means there is a lot of fun to be had! Join Pippi, Annika, and Tommy in their adventures on board a ship, hosting farewell parties, and visiting with Pippi's father, the island king.
Bright colors, zany illustrations, and, of course, an irrepressibly joyful, strong-willed heroine: Lindgren and Vang Nyman's brilliant work guarantees that Pippi Fixes Everythingwill become an instant classic for young and old alike.
“One of pop culture's original not-so-bad bad kids, Pippi proves a great role model for girls and boys in many ways, and is far enough removed from real-life that her bad behavior, which is generally no worse than a refusal to bend to nonsensical societal mores, can be enjoyed as a sort of remove: Pippi gets to do those things because she's special, she's Pippi.” —School Library Journal
“These are fun, colorful comics that are perfect for elementary school-age readers.” —Comic Book Resources
