As a girl I loved Pippi and still have my childhood copies of the books. Olle hasn't read them, but we do have a BBC audio tape. I bought that for him about two years ago and at first he didn't like it - it appeared to disturb him in some way. I think he found the notion of Pippi living alone without parents to look after her a bit scary. But he's grown into it and just the other day we had it on in the car. It's very funny. I can't remember finding it funny as a child - I think I took it very seriously as a wonderful story. Now, it's hilarious - it continually satirises the adult world.
