Mrs Pepperpot Minds the Baby

Publisher: Random House

Review

Mrs Pepperpot has an unfortunate problem: she shrinks at the most unexpected moments. And one of those moments comes while she has agreed to look after Roger, the neighbour's baby.

Delighted, Roger takes her for a doll, and it takes all Mrs Pepperpot's ingenuity to keep him (and herself) safe until his mother returns.

In this newly illustrated and abridged full-colour picture book version of the original story, Hilda Offen has removed most of the Scandinavian touches of the original drawings, but she has retained Mrs. Pepperpot's essential bun, red and white striped dress and white apron.

This is an updated Pepperpot book that should appeal to both the nostalgic and the newcomer alike.
