AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Peter and Joan construct the characters of Dan, Mrs Peg and Nobby from three clothes pegs and each chapter is a further adventure of these pegmen.

Notes

  • Dedication: To the children I knew years ago who built Pegmen's Run beside the Macquarie River and grew up and forgot, and to their heirs, the children of today who have greeted every tale of the Pegmen's adventures with the cry 'Tell us some more!' this book is dedicated.
