Mister Peebles

Mister Peebles is the man with the animals, he meets them on his world travels. He is quite a shy sort of chap and while at home prefers to sit in his chair, drink tea and read tales. Helen McGinley draws his animals, keeps the teapot filled and listens to his stories. The watercolour illustrations often feature puns or sayings that centre around animals and their adventures.
