Reviews

'The sort of old-fashioned nature story that will appeal to fans of the Flower Fairies. I love these gentle stories which are steep in natural history. The pictures show all manner of wildlife, really conjuring up what it might be like to live as a tiny creature on the forest floor. Happily, my daughter shares my fascination.'

.familiesonline.co.uk), Autumn 2005 'First published in Sweden in 1901, Peter in Blueberry Land still maintains its original appeal. This is an enchanting story, perfect for reading aloud before bedtime.

.booktrusted.com) 'When Peter cannot find any berries, the King of Blueberry Land shrinks him so he can go on an adventure: ferns like trees, spider web swings, giant bugs and slugs and a mouse ride through the forest. The children I have read this book to have loved this cheerful and exciting story. They have been fascinated at the thought of being made tiny for the day.

, Education Otherwise, February 2005 'Look out for the insects and small creatures included in the pictures that juicily illustrate Peter's adventures.
