One for older or more mature children, this. Personally, I can take Mrs Pepperpot or leave her; she has never seemed very lovable to me. But she is liked by children, usually girls who are young but fluent readers, and this collection is inventive and entertaining. The situations in which Mrs Pepperpot finds herself as a result of her predilection for suddenly shrinking to the size of a pepperpot make lively introductions to 'big, thick books' for children who are gaining stamina but not yet ready for a novel format.
