My eight year old son just loves this book and I, his mum, love reading it with him as its a trip down memory lane! Great innocent stories, light hearted enjoyment before sleep ...... just what you want for your little ones. Cant recommend it enough. I am told the pictures are good too!

My 5 year old absolutely loves this book and is always asking me to read it at bedtime. These are stories which haven't dated over the years, and still hold the magic that they possessed when I was small.

The ever-popular Mrs Pepperpot is brought up to date for a new, younger market in this colourful book. Two stories, Mrs Pepperpot and the Treasure and Mrs Pepperpot and the Bazaar, draw children into the fantastic world of this lady whose habit of shrinking at unexpected moments gets her into all kinds of trouble. The vibrant illustrations show this lovely character both large and small and really bring her to life. Super to see these books brought to a new market, whi will hopefully grow into reading the full stories. A magical yet believable character, one of the classics of children's fiction.

Absolutely fab book, pitched perfectly for reading to younger children and for early readers to read to you, combined with beautiful illustrations it is a brilliant buy. We've just ordered more of these books.

I had very fond memories of Mrs Pepperpot and my 4 year old son liked the stories from an old batter book of mine but it didn't have many pictures and I thought this version might be more suitable for his age. The book is well illustrated and has two stories. The reason for my moderate review is that I don't really like one of the stories - it includes children being mean to a cat (throwing things at it) and when Mrs Pepperpot is big again she doesn't reprimand the children for their behaviour. That may be the original story and maybe was acceptable then but I didn't think it set a very good example these days.

Well packaged and delivered on time. Beautiful illustrations and the colours are nice and bright. The story is just lovely. Will be buying other titles of Mrs Pepperpot. Not a bad price well worth it.

First, may I thank reviewers who put in the age of the child for whom these stories are purchased: it is most helpful. I'm about to give the Stories to my six year old great-granddaughter. My children loved these stories, but it's too long ago to remember how old they were when they read them. I may have to update this review when Santa has taken the book to my grandie!
