Abstract
This chapter examines the red-headed orphans that abound in children’s literature across the Western world, from Lucy Maud Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables (1908), Little Orphan Annie comics (1924), Madeline (1939) to Astrid Lindgren’s Pippi Longstocking (1945). This chapter considers these girl-children who have been ostracized for their dual differences as gingers and as orphans. Life’s difficulties are brought into focus through perceptions on how such prejudices and stigmatization is reflected in the literature about these characters but also explores how their characters become even stronger in the face of such unfair adversity.
