9780099451570: Mrs Pepperpot Learns to Swim (Mrs Pepperpot Picture Books)

Mrs. Pepperpot has a problem—a huge problem—she shrinks! And when she shrinks she finds herself in all sorts of trouble. Mrs. Pepperpot is determined to practice her swimming, so when all the village children go for a picnic in the mountains she goes to the pool in the wood. But disaster strikes—just as Mrs. Pepperpot jumps into the water she shrinks! Now the pool seems as big as an ocean. Luckily there's a friendly frog nearby to rescue her and give her swimming lessons.

About the Author:

Alf Prøysen was born in Norway in 1914. The Mrs Pepperpot books first appeared in the 1950s and were an immediate success. They have been loved by children ever since and have been translated into many different languages. Hilda Offen is a well-known picture book illustrator, who won the Smarties Prize in 1992 for Nice Work, Little Wolf. Since then she has illustrated many picture books, including Fred and Ted's Treasure Hunt.

Review:

"The stories have that sense of magic which all the best children's stories have" Independent on Sunday "An engaging picture book" -- Yvonne Coppard Carousel 20061101 "The paperback picture book format gives the stories an added charm ... With colourful child-friendly pictures by Hilda Offen. Children must find these stories immensely reassuring and those of four and upwards will enjoy this new format" Newbury Weekly News 20060427 "Red Fox have breathed new life into this wonderful character ... As well as bringing back fond childhood memories for many adults, these books will now surely capture the imagination of a new generation of young readers" South Wales Argus 20060527
