No school, no parents, no bedtime or rules. With her mom in the clouds and her dad at sea, Pippi's on her own to live as she pleases. A girl of indomitable strength and fierce independence, Pippi quickly befriends neighbor kids and delights in playing games that confound authorities. Anything can, and will, be put to rhythm and rhyme as she bucks the system and dances away any blues. She takes center stage in the circus, wrestles the strongman, outwits burglars and dodges the orphanage. While friends Tommy and Annika love Pippi and her outlandish existence, the local adults want her to conform to their rules.
