Look and Say with Pip and Posy

Next year we’re expanding the world of Axel Scheffler’s Pip and Posy with some FANTASTIC new books – here’s a preview of what’s in store for 2014.

In April, we’ll be publishing Pip and Posy: Look and Say – an engaging new picture book with richly-detailed scenes, a conversational, friendly text and Axel’s characteristic touches of humour.

With fun, busy scenes and lots to talk about, this delightful first book is perfect for sharing with an inquisitive toddler. A ‘Can you find these things?’ panel on each spread adds an ‘I-spy’ game element for extra fun – look for the objects along the bottom of each page, spot them in the scenes and then say the words – it’s great for speech development and an ideal book for parent and child to share.

Here’s a first look inside Look and Say:

And in February, we’ll be publishing the first paperback edition of Pip and Posy: The Big Balloon, in a glorious, extra-large format and bundled with a free Stories Aloud audio reading – advance finished copies have just arrived in the Crow’s Nest and they look SPLENDID. It’s an absolutely charming story for anyone who loves balloons and bubbles – Pip is really proud of his big balloon, but when he accidentally lets it go and it pops, he is very, very sad… Luckily, Posy has a clever idea and soon Pip is smiling again.

Here’s a look inside the book:
