Books for Young People fall preview: titles for exploring - Pippi: The Strongest in the World!

“Pippi: The Strongest in the World!” / Quill & Quire / June 22, 2015

Arsenal Pulp Press is hoping for big things from German artist and author Beldan Sezen’s Snapshots of a Girl, an autobiographical coming-of-age and coming-out graphic novel (Oct.).  In celebration of the 70th anniversary of the character’s creation, in October Drawn & Quarterly will release Pippi Longstocking: The Strongest in the World! by Astrid Lindgren and Ingrid Vang Nyman. The Invention of Hugo Cabret author Brian Selznick works his usual magic with words and pictures in his illustrated novel The Marvels (Scholastic, Sept.), which traces five generations of a legendary family, beginning with a shipwreck in 1766.
