The kids love Pip and Posy, though especially Little Man. He is fascinated by them. We have a couple of their books, and we were very happy to receive this new title to review, thanks to Nosy Crow recently…
Pip and Posy: The Bedtime Frog, illustrated by Axel Scheffler
When Posy goes to stay at Pip’s house they have lots of fun together before bedtime. But just as they switch out the light, disaster strikes: Posy realises that she has forgotten her favourite frog toy. Desperate to help his distraught friend, Pip offers Posy a range of different toys to substitute for her frog, including his own favourite frog money box. But none of them will do, “that’s the wrong frog!” Posy wails. It is only when Pip gives Posy his own, very favourite, pig toy that Posy is comforted and that the friends can get a good night’s sleep, at last.
Such a fabulous book! We love this pair, and this picture book continues to impress. As well as the adorable story of friendship, and Pip’s self-sacrificing to ensure his friend is comfortable, every page is full of little details that we like to discuss. Little Man is very keen to grow his vocabulary at the moment, and likes to point to every item on every page for me to tell him what it is, and Scheffler packs those details in. A lovely book, that has us eagerly awaiting another!
