Tommy and his sister Annika have a new neighbour, and her name is Pippi Longstocking. She has crazy red pigtails, no parents to tell her what to do, a horse that lives on the porch and a pet monkey named Mr. Nilsson. Whether Pippi's scrubbing her floors, doing arithmetic or stirring things up at a fancy tea party, her flair for the outrageous always seems to lead to another adventure.


Pippi Longstocking is a fiery 9-year-old with red braids and shoes that are much too big. Her mother died when she was a baby, and her father, a ship’s captain, is lost at sea. She used to travel with him and claims to have seen much of the world. Pippi believes her father is still alive and will return to her. In the meantime, she lives in the retirement house he purchased called Villa Villekulla. Her unnamed horse and her monkey, Mr. Nilsson, live with her. She has little concern for money and pays for anything she needs out of her suitcase full of gold coins.
