One of my favorite childhood books. Time to revisit it! Pippi Longstocking (Swedish: Pippi Långstrump) is a 1945 children's novel by the Swedish writer Astrid Lindgren. Lindgren wrote the book for her daughter, who apparently was sick in bed.

One of my favorite books when I was young was Miss Happiness and Miss Flower by Rumer Godden. I know I was in elementary school, but I can't remember exactly how old Miss Happiness and Miss Flower are two little.
