Synopsis

Peter and Lotta's Adventure by Elsa Beskow

Peter and Lotta need to find homes for some kittens. Washerwoman Wendy is always grumpy with them, but they hope that a gift will cheer her up -- and it does! That's just the start of a day of unexpected adventures for two of Elsa Beskow's most loved characters, as they find themselves asleep on a cart, at a mill miles from home and at a fair, disguised as an old man and woman.

Reviews

'Another well-loved picture book from Elsa Beskow.'

'The illustrations are bold and colourful, they are realistic and seem to stand out from the page. The black and white silhouettes are fun. We liked this book and would recommend it to others.'

, Education Otherwise 'Author/Illustrator Elsa Beskow shares her old fashion charm, simple dialogue and her distinctive artwork with very unique shadow cutouts in the adventure tale and travels of Peter and Lotta. [...] Elsa Beskow should be added to other early nature writers/artists for children, like Beatrice Potter, etc. in creating a simple story through the eyes of innocent children, pets and people.' --Youth Services Book Review

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

Sarah Murray – age 15

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
