Little Kipper Miaow!

Mick Inkpen
Created by master storyteller, Mick Inkpen, there is a whole range of “Kipper” books to choose from: classic picture books, TV tie in picture books, novelty board books, sticker books, pop up books and much much more.
Kipper and Tiger find a kitten stuck in a conker tree, and attempt to get it down again.

Kipper is always popular in our house and this story is a current favourite for our youngest (17mths). These board book format “Little Kippers” have a simple story and are perfect for the little reader. She really likes being able to hold the book herself and can turn the pages (not always at the right time, I might add, and some pages are more popular than others!).

The concept of this story really appeals to Sienna as she understands what it means to be “stuck” somewhere. The light-hearted twist at the end has provoked comment from her older sister, who is now old enough to really understand the story. She also likes counting the conkers with Tiger.

The illustrations are lovely, clear, water-coloured drawings, and Kipper can be found, and pointed at, on most pages. If he isn’t there, one of his friends will be. They are closely related to the story and make it easy to follow even if the understanding of words is limited.

Verdict: As always, Kipper appeals to everyone, and this is another great addition to your Kipper collection.

      tutu,
      I hope you don’t mind me calling you that!
      Yes there are literally hundreds of book blog/review sites out there in the blogosphere.
      What are your particular interests? Kids books, Middle grade, Young Adult or adult?
