Originally appearing as a series of short stories in a children's magazine, The Peterkin Papers is a collection of tales of a hysterically inept family named The Peterkins.

The Peterkin's unfortunate lack of common sense causes hilarious unintended consequences nearly every time they have an idea. The Peterkins muddle through life's challenges with love and cooperation, but when they come to their wits' end, they know they need help.

    " I read this as a child, and it still makes me smile - even though my copy is a little dog-eared now! "

    " I remembered the Peterkin Papers as one of my favorite books from childhood, especially the Lady Who Put Salt in her Coffee. Now reading it as an adult, the Peterkins are less amusing. The writing is clean but tends to ramble on for too long. "

    " I'm not quite sure what to think of this one...on the one hand, it is unquestionably funny. However, the author's writing style drove me a wee bit crazy. I always wanted more dialogue. Good fun, though. "

    " Amusing stories. However it is so old fashioned that I found even I could not always understand the language. "
