Peter and Lotta's Adventure

USD $16.50

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.

 

Elsa Beskow (1874-1953) is the most popular children's illustrator in Sweden, where her picture books have been known and loved for over a century.

Recommended for 5 - 8 years.

Hardcover, 32 pages.  234 x 294 mm.

Floris Books.

 

Reviews

'Another well-loved picture book from Elsa Beskow.' 
-- Kindling: Early Childhood Care and Education 

'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.' 
-- Karis (9) and Galen (5), 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 

'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. ' 
-- Youth Services Book Review 

'Peter and Lotta's Adventure is a new addition to author/illustrator Elsa Beskow's 'Peter and Lotta' series that is here published in English for the first time making it available to a whole new generation of American children ages 3 to 7. "Peter and Lotta's Adventure" is certain to be an enduringly popular addition to family, preschool, elementary school, and community library picture book collections.
