Promotional Information

In a mix of prose and verse, supported by documents, drawings and old photographs, The Bucket retrieves a childhood which lovers of the Ahlbergs' classic picture book Peepo! might feel they have glimpsed before but which is now exquisitely brought to life.

About the Author
