The pretty little milk jug began its life in a winter of the mid-1800s, Bavaria. As a classic staple of teatime around the world, placed usually in the hub of a home; the kitchen, the jug is privy to its various owners' personal lives and tragedies. The jug is exposed to royalty, to poverty, to cultural get-togethers, to domestic violence, to death in the family, to family disputes, to weddings, and more. From palaces, to slums, to theme parks and schools... life through the eyes of an inanimate object may be far more thrilling than realised. On a wider level, the little jug lives through two world wars, and other astonishing world-changing events, such as those on 9/11. The jug moves from Europe, right to the other side of the world, Australia. Here is its story. It needs to be told.

About Margaret Rees-Gow
Margaret lives to write - either poetry, short stories or children's and young adult books. At age sixty-eight she has had her first book published. She knows she is a late-bloomer in the publishing world, but she is on a roll now that she has found outlets for her stories and poetry. Life and family just got in the way until there was time to concentrate on her writing, and she had time to research avenues and ways to have her work put out there. The first book is Primrose and The Mystery of Frangipani Bay. She has written further stories in the life of Primrose Scarlet and these are with her publishers.
