A classic not to be missed!  Fearless, irrepressible, irreverent–the original wild child, Pippi is as endearing as ever.  She will have you beside yourself in laughter and lining up to be her new best friend.

We read the version illustrated by Lauren Child (pictured above, yellow cover), whose whimsical style will be familiar to Charlie and Lola fans.

Equal parts hilarity and exciting adventure, this 1948 classic chapter book tells the tale of a boy on a quest to rescue an overworked baby dragon from an island bristling with wild beasts.  The first in a trilogy that includes Elmer and the Dragon and The Dragons of Blueland.
