(THEY CAME FROM PERU. They were a family of Gnomes called Hairy Peruvians. They lived by fishing for anchovies in the great Pacific Ocean. But when the Shining Spaniards came, and plundered their land, they decided to seek another home across the sea.
But how could they make the long voyage? Their little boats were too frail, and they had no way to build anything stronger.
The Lazy Pelican showed them the way. They brought the Poppykettle down from the high Andes, rigged her out as a ship, and set off across the great ocean.
This book tells of all their adventures before they found the new country. They had many narrow escapes but at last they landed in southern Australia, and set off to explore the great new land.
The HANS CHRISTIAN ANDERSEN MEDAL reproduced on the cover was awarded to Robert Ingpen in 1986)
