Astrid Lindgren (1907 – 2002) was a Swedish writer of fiction and screenplays. She created many memorable characters, but her most famous creation must be Pippi Långstrump aka Pippi Longstocking – the strongest girl in the world. Pippi certainly is my favorite. In these photos you see Lindgren with the child actress Inger Nilsson who played Pippi in the TV series.Inger-Nilsson-Astrid-Lindgren pippi-astrid-lindgren

Cool little fact: Each year they hand out the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award to “authors, illustrators, oral storytellers and promoters of reading” whose “work is of the highest quality, and in the spirit of Astrid Lindgren.”
