Take a look inside Pip and Posy: The Friendly Snail – a brand new book from The Gruffalo illustrator, Axel Scheffler

Next month we’re delighted to be publishing Pip and Posy: The Friendly Snail – a brand new book in the much-loved Pip and Posy picture book series, from The Gruffalo illustrator, Axel Scheffler, and written by Camilla Reid.

And today we’re sharing a very first look inside the new book!

Pip and Posy are spending a lovely afternoon outside, but while Pip wants to do some quiet gardening, Posy wants to have fun playing noisy games. When Posy’s racket frightens Pip’s new snail friend back into its shell, Pip gets cross . . . Oh dear! But then a big, greedy bird tries to take Pip’s snail, and it turns out Posy’s loud voice can be quite useful, after all!

A heart-warming and relatable new Pip and Posy story about valuing each other’s differences, with gentle lessons about kindness and friendship, this is a wonderful addition to Axel Scheffler’s series – and perfect to share with toddlers and very young children this spring.

Take a look inside the book:

Pip and Posy: The Friendly Snail will be available on March 4th – you can pre-order a copy from Waterstones here, Bookshop.org here, or Amazon here.

Last year, we shared the very exciting news that an animated series of Pip and Posy will be coming to Channel 5’s Milkshake and Sky Kids later this year – you can read about it here.
