Mrs. Pepperpot Stories

Mrs. Pepperpot Stories book cover
Mrs. Pepperpot Stories are short little stories about a sweet old woman, living with her husband, Mr. Pepperpot, in a small house near the woods. And what is so special about this specific woman? She, in the most inconvenient moments shrinks to the size of a teaspoon! She can talk with animals at this size and she makes friends with all of them. She also helps children with this ability. Fun fact: before the translation to English, the book was originally called Mrs. Teaspoon to emphasize the size of Mrs. Pepperpot aka Teaspoon.
