So sneaky—this is also the sign-up for my mailing list… However, I promise you won’t get more than one or two emails a year from me—only to notify you of a new book for sale or another free story for download. So it’s worth signing up!
When I taught third grade, both boys and girls loved the stories of Pippi Longstocking—so that even reluctant writers turned their hand to creating new adventures for Pippi. When you sign up for the mailing list, you’ll be given a link to download one of mine. If you’ve never read Pippi’s stories, you’re in for a treat. Astrid Lindgren created one of the most engaging heroines in children’s literature! Pippi is not only the strongest girl in the world, she doesn’t go to school and follows few rules. She lives alone with a horse and a monkey on Villa Villekulla, next to neighbors Tommy and Annika. No money worries—she’s got a suitcase full of gold—and a father who’s a cannibal king. But it’s Pippi’s twisted logic that makes her truly memorable both for children and for adults. If you haven’t read Pippi’s stories, you should check them out—and enjoy mine as well!
