Astrid‘s daughter Karin was sick in bed and wanted her mum to tell her a story. “Tell me about Pippi Longstocking” she pleaded, and in that instant she had invented what was to become one of the world’s most famous children’s book characters. “Since the name was remarkable, it had to be a remarkable girl”, said Astrid Lindgren. For years she was making up new stories for Karin and her friends.

We will celebrate with a miniature Villa Villekulla with three classic picture books in miniformat, a play section and Pippi and her friends to play with.
To be published in spring 2015.
