The children set out for a picnic on an island together with the three colourful aunts, Aunt Green, Aunt Brown and Aunt Lavender. While the adults are having a nap, Peter and Lotta decide to go and practise their rowing, but disaster strikes when they become distracted and accidentally lose the oars…

'Evidence from my family and its visitors confirms that Elsa Beskow's Peter and Lotta stories somehow capture the imagination. The illustrations in these lovely hardback editions have something of the charm that Carl Larson's watercolours have. For children I suspect these books have the old-fashioned feel and colour that a good Nordic "heimat" film does for me as an adult. Children love them.'
