Mrs Pepperpot has a problem - a huge problem - she shrinks! And when she shrinks she finds herself in all sorts of trouble...Mrs Pepperpot is determined to practise her swimming, so when all the village children go for a picnic in the mountains she goes to the pool in the wood. But disaster strikes - just as Mrs Pepperpot jumps into the water she shrinks! Now the pool seems as big as an ocean. Luckily there's a friendly frog nearby to rescue her and give her swimming lessons.When Mrs Pepperpot agrees to mind baby Roger from next door, she doesn't know that she's going to shrink. How can she look after him when she's only as tall as a pepperpot? Baby Roger thinks she's a doll and jiggles and joggles her and throws her high in the air. Will Mrs Pepperpot be able to keep the baby out of mischief until his mother comes to get him?
