Pippi

· Pippi

”Her hair was the color of a carrot and it was braided in two tight braids that stuck straight out. Her nose was the shape of a very small potato, and it was completely covered with freckles. Under her nose was an exceptionally wide mouth with nice white teeth. Her dress was quite odd. Pippi had made it herself. It was supposed to have been blue, but there hadn’t been enough blue material, so Pippi had decided to sew little red patches here and there. On her long, thin legs she wore long stockings, one of them brown and the other black. And she wore black shoes that were exactly twice the length of her feet. Her father had bought those shoes for her in South America, big enough so she would have room to grow into them, and Pippi never wanted any others.”
From Pippi Longstocking 1945 (Translation by Tiina Nunnally)
