We love Pippi Longstocking.
The unconventional eight year old heroine who was created by Swedish author Astrid Lindgren
for her nine year old daughter, Karin, when she was home sick.
Check out the adventures of the girl with 'the strength of ten policemen' who is known to pick
up a horse one-handed.
Maybe this will inspire you to get creative the next time your little one is ill.
Inbetween blowing their nose and feeding them 'get well' chicken soup that is.
