Mrs Pepperpot and the Blueberries by Alf Proysen

The only thing that Mr Pepperpot wants is a pot of blueberry jam to go on his pancakes, so Mrs Pepperpot storms out to pick the blueberries to make it. But when she is out in the woods she shrinks! There are lots of scary animals: a fox, a wolf and a bear. Will her cunning be enough to get her back home in time to make the jam? A new classic Mrs Pepperpot story beautifully illustrated by Hilda Offen.
