Reviews

'First published in Sweden in 1901, Peter in Blueberry Land still maintains its original appeal. This is an enchanting story, perfect for reading aloud before bedtime.'
-- Booktrusted (www.booktrusted.com)

'When Peter cannot find any berries, the King of Blueberry Land shrinks him so he can go on an adventure: ferns like trees, spider web swings, giant bugs and slugs and a mouse ride through the forest. The children I have read this book to have loved this cheerful and exciting story. They have been fascinated at the thought of being made tiny for the day.'
-- Hilary Woolfe with Isaac (age 4), Education Otherwise, February 2005

'Look out for the insects and small creatures included in the pictures that juicily illustrate Peter's adventures.'
-- Highland News
