A mini gift edition of Elsa Beskow's classic story. Peter is looking for blueberries for his mother's birthday but he can't find a single one. Suddenly he feels a light tap on his shoe, and a strange and magical adventure begins. Reviews '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 About the Author Elsa Beskow (1874-1953) is the Beatrix Potter of Sweden.

'The sort of old-fashioned nature story that will appeal to fans of the Flower Fairies. I love these gentle stories which are steep in natural history. The pictures show all manner of wildlife, really conjuring up what it might be like to live as a tiny creature on the forest floor. Happily, my daughter shares my fascination.'-- Jo Rogers, Families Online (www.familiesonline.co.uk), Autumn 2005'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.
