Historical Nonfiction

fun facts, quotes, and pictures from history
Though today largely forgotten, upstaged by Disney starlets and Bratz dolls, Pippi Longstocking once was a megastar for children. Her first book came out in 1945 (by Astrid Lindgren — thanks Sweden!) and she was an instant hit. Pippi eventually had a tv series, movie, a few tv specials, and even a Soviet made-for-tv movie. Pippi was notable for her superhuman strength and living by herself in a huge house.
