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.
Corduroy by Don Freeman is the first in a long series of picture books about little teddy bear. In this one he's living in an apartment store, forgotten on a shelf long enough he's lost one of his buttons. This book is part of my childhood!
