Pippi Longstocking, often referred to as the strongest little girl in the world, is 9 years old and lives in a tiny Swedish town called Villa Villekulla. Together with Mr. Nilsson the monkey, her pet horse, and two friends, Tommy and Annika, Pippi inspires enthusiasm wherever she goes and finds herself in one rollicking adventure after another. Heiress to her father King Efraim's kingdom on Kurrekurredutt Island, Pippi aspires to become a pirate when she grows up because she enjoys frolicking in the sea and diving for oysters.
