Pip and Posy by Axel Scheffler
In these satisfyingly robust, colourful books Axel Scheffler, of Gruffalo fame, has created the wholly desirable preschool world of Pip and Posy. One hopes there are more to come!
Pip and Posy are best friends who enjoy playdates full of exciting games at each other’s houses or busy times in the park and playground. When Pip is so busy playing he forgets to use the potty, Posy is comforting and practical. She mops ups and lends him some dry clothes. And when Posy takes Pip’s scooter and has a bad fall, it is Pip who comforts with a plaster and a hug.
These simple stories are simultaneously cosy and reassuring while celebrating the growing independence of the young. Perfect for one to three year olds.
