Foreword by Karin Nyman and comments by Ulla Lundqvist
Astrid Lindgren’s original manuscript about Pippi Longstocking is published here for the first time. Initially, it was rejected by Albert Bonniers Förlag, but having been reworked, it was accepted and published by Rabén & Sjögren in 1945. The comments at the end of the book were written by Ulla Lundqvist who is an author, critic and children’s literature researcher, among other things. The revolutionary Pippi Longstocking we all know appears mild in comparison with the original Pippi.
