Whether it's waking up to find toads in their shoes, becoming trapped on the roof, or searching for cheese when their cow only makes lemonade, the Pepin family always seems to get into the most bizarre scrapes. Lucky for them, they have an author with large psychic antennae and great problem-solving listeners who can join the Pepins on their hilarious adventures. And they need all the help they can get! In this joyfully absurd romp Polly Horvath is in top comedic form.

Critic reviews

"The sly humor is just right for upper-elementary-school kids, and this book should be a fun read-aloud for younger listeners." ( School Library Journal)
"Absurd characters and situations and witty repartee are Horvath's strengths...the wordplay is a great argument for reading this aloud; adults will enjoy the story almost as much as children." ( Booklist)

Chuckles for little girls

My grand-daughters aged 8 and 10 live in France, next to a field of cows, and their neighbours, who happen to be called - Pepin. They adored the silly doings of the fictional Pepins, and listened again and again. This was a complete success!
