These tales from Norwegian author Alf Proysen are hilarious and funny (according to my nine year old daughter). Mrs Pepperpot is an old woman who can shrink to the size of a pepper pot at any moment. Each chapter in this book is a complete story, making this a perfect bedtime book for younger readers. They may ask for more as her adventures are very entertaining and unexpected but they won't be left with a cliff hanger of an ending.
