Are Pippi and her friends ready to say good-bye to Villa Villekula? When her father the king sends for Pippi, she decides to take Tommy and Annika along. They find Kurrekurredutt Island a fantastic place--children play marbles with pearls and Pippi even becomes Princess Pippilotta--and what with Pippi's off-the-wall antics, one crazy adventure follows another. But will Pippi and her friends really want to live on the island forever, never to return to Villa Villekula? Ages 8--l2. 125 pages, softcover from Puffin Books.
"Any reappearance of the irrepressible Pippi Longstocking is cause for celebration. This installment is no exception." -The New York Times
