Synopsis

Oh No Peedie Peebles by Mairi Hedderwick

The Peebles family have just moved house and there's a lot to be done. Much to his annoyance, Peedie Peebles is not, under any circumstances, allowed near any of the pots of paint. But as we follow the Peebles around their new home and each room is painted a different colour, the temptation proves just too much for naughty Peedie Peebles. And the end result is certainly colourful - if a bit chaotic. Mairi Hedderwick perfectly captures the child's-eye view in this endearing picture book, which will help the youngest child to see the fun - and results - of paint mixing.

About the Author

Mairi Hedderwick
Mairi Hedderwick was born in Gourock, Scotland. At seventeen she took a job as a mother’s help on the Isle of Coll in the Hebrides, beginning a life-long love affair with islands and their small communities. Her children were brought up there and now some of her grandchildren. From being Grannie Island she has now moved on to being Granma Mainland, but her heart is always on the island. Mairi’s island world is delightfully reflected in the imaginary island of Struay where Katie Morag and her family live. As well as creating children’s books Mairi writes and illustrates travel books for adults. She spends a lot of time visiting schools and is always accompanied by Katie Morag’s teddy, which travels with her in a black bag.
