You are about to read the story of Peter and his BIG YEAR. When you have finished you will see that every year, you, like Peter, go on a wonderful journey.

Every time your birthday comes round, you know that since your last birthday you have gone all the way around the Sun, and are starting to do it all over again.

I hope you'll like Peter, and make believe you and Peter are just the same -- maybe you are.

Every boy and girl can get the Big Year, if they just know how to ask, and their questions are good questions. Because each of you has an Uncle Peppercorn too, and though he is very small, he is very very important.

Uncle Peppercorn's signature
