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. For over one hundred years, all Scandinavian children have grown up with her books. Other titles available in English from Floris include Peter in Blueberry Land (full-size edition), Children of the Forest (full-size and mini), Pelle's New Suit, and Peter and Lotta's Christmas.

WRITE A REVIEW

A timeless and magical read

4

I bought this book for my nephew as a gift. I already own a couple of Elsa Beskow's books and I find the illustrations magical and the stories are filled with sweet little folk. However, I think that a tiny bit of the magic is lost in translation.

'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.
