First in the 'Peter & Lotta' series, this is the story of how the children first came to live with the three old aunts in their little yellow house. Aunt Green is always out in her orchard; Aunt Brown likes making gingerbread ...and Aunt Lavender just dresses in lavender. And opposite, keeping an eye out for naughty children scrumping the Aunts' fruit lives Uncle Blue.
When a nasty man makes off with their poodle, Dot, the children help find him - and a kitten into the bargain! Since the children have no parents and live with Washerwoman Wendy who doesn't like them, it's easily arranged that they come to live with the aunts. Esmerelda, the kitten, gets to stay too: "she helped by catching rats and drinking cream and playing with Aunt Lavender's ball of wool."
Beautiful little story with illustrations set in the Swedish countryside.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Good Book from Elsa Beskow 26 Jun. 2016
By Lin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Beautifully illustrated book by Elsa Beskow. The reader comes to know the three aunts, their home, town and little Dot their dog!
There is a good story line when Dot disappears and the three aunts go out looking for her. Each aunt finds herself in a predicament,
but in the end, everyone ends up at home around the table! A good story for young children!

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it as a child, and my son loves it, too 11 Jun. 2013
By B H - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I'm Danish, and I had this book as a child, so I was thrilled to see that it had been translated. It's a lovely slow paced book to read for your little one, the illustrations are beautiful and really gets the imagination going. A tale from a healthy past era, promoting real values. A breath of fresh air from our often too materialist focused society.

Elsa Beskow's stories are so charming. I loved them as a child, reading them in Danish. I now order them in English for the children in my life.

5.0 out of 5 stars great old book 27 Jun. 2007
By Virginia Price - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I remember this book from my childhood. I think my Mom had a copy in Swedish or Danish and she would translate as she read it to us. Now I can read it myself in English and still think it's great. The colorful women are just as they should be. There is nothing more pleasing to a child than predictable nice stories with very pretty pictures. I can highly recommend it.
