At the end of a street, in a little village, is Peter’s house. It’s an old, falling down house. But Peter helps everyone: mending things, building toy boats, and telling stories. Will anyone help him when an official says his house must be pulled down?
This is a wonderful, charming story in the best tradition of Elsa Beskow’s Swedish tales, as all the children in the village rally round to help Peter when he needs them most.
Elsa Beskow (1874-1953) is the most popular children?s illustrator in Sweden, where her picture books have been known and loved for over a century.
