The story begins as follows:
Katie loved her mummy's teapot. Her mummy told Katie that it was older than Gran and Gran was very old - and yet the painted flowers had hardly faded at all. Katie thought this odd, but then, there was something very odd about Mummy's teapot.
One day, Katie's mummy took the teapot from the shelf for a clean. Katie sat and watched.
'Mummy,' Katie quizzed, 'how many cups of tea have been poured from our teapot?'
Mummy chuckled. 'Probably enough to fill that big pond at the back of your gran's house!'
Katie chuckled too. This made her think of a huge teapot. Imagine that!
Katie pictured her family and friends gathering outside. The town crier would ring his bell and announce Katie's momentous tea-party!
When Katie opened her eyes, she found to her astonishment that the teapot had indeed grown and she was sitting inside.
The teapot began to float. It floated from the table, across the living room and up the chimney.
This educational picture book for children between the ages of 3 and 7 sees Katie learning about the planets, galaxies and stars for the very first time. Detailed illustrations in oils offer lots of visual stimulation and a fun and unique way for children to learn about the universe.
A sequel to this story, Katie and the Cosmic Pandas' Deep Sea Voyage sees Katie journeying once again in her teapot and with her entourage of pandas only to encounter lots of strange creatures in the oceans deep. Another great educational book for young explorers.
