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.

Gorgeous scratchboard art to swoon over from the author/illustrator of the classic Corduroy.  Earl’s mom thinks he’s been spoiled by a little girl who feeds him acorns each day.  It’s time he set out and find some grub on his own!  But will he know how to get his paws on some?
