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.

'The illustrations and story are reminiscent of the olden days. Children will immediately know this story is from times past and also takes place in a country other than the U.S. Because of the otherworldliness of the story, it reads like a fairy tale. '

'Peter and Lotta's Adventure is a new addition to author/illustrator Elsa Beskow's 'Peter and Lotta'

's Adventure is certain to be an enduringly popular addition to family, preschool, elementary school, and community library picture book collections. -- Midwest Book Review'
