Anna and her parents live in a lighthouse, surrounded by the ocean, far from neighbours and friends. Their only visitor is Mr Pegg, the postman. But when Mr Pegg needs help with his deliveries, Anna comes to the rescue. Maybe she will find some friends after all …
Mr Pegg’s Post
Mr Pegg the Postman Pelican was inspired from the well-known pelican “Petros” that used to live on the island of Mykonos and the lighthouse depicted within the book is based on a real lighthouse found on the island of Andros. The background illustrations are mainly drawn from the author/illustrator’s childhood memories of the Greek islands and her love of the sea. The illustrations were created with watercolours, ink and finished digitally.
