Point of View

Pippi Longstocking is written in a third-person point of view. The author interjects Pippi’s history into the story, so the reader gets a well-rounded illustration of Pippi as an individual. This history explains Pippi’s knowledge of far off countries when she recalls them to Tommy and Annika, or the adults who find her troublesome. The third person point of view allows the reader to take a step back and gather information about Pippi in order to get to know her as a character and be entertained by her personality.

In addition to the reader seeing Pippi’s point of view throughout the novel, we also see the reactions of those subjected to her comments or rationalities. Since it is a children’s novel, only the surface of the characters are exposed in an effort to make it easy and entertaining to read.
