0-2
Quantity

The much-acclaimed toddler book series from The Gruffalo illustrator, Axel Scheffler.

Simple but engaging stories which reflect the ups – and downs – of toddler life.

Major new animation series launching on Milkshake in 2021

Pip and Posy are best friends – they love to play, and make things, and have fun. But just occasionally they get cross or sad, and sometimes things go wrong that are beyond their control. And that’s when kindness and understanding – and a cuddle – make everything better.

In The Bedtime Frog, Posy goes for a sleepover at Pip’s house. The friends 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. Keen 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 the friends can get a good night’s sleep, at last.

There are loads of titles to collect . . . The Super Scooter, The Big Balloon, The New Friend – and many more!

– Readings

“We’ve been huge Pip and Posy fans for what feels like a lifetime… so it was a big day indeed when a NEW book came out! The New Friend is everything you’d expect from Scheffler and we all love it. I’d say it’s gone in above The Little Puddle and The Scary Monster but below The Snowy Day and The Bedtime Frog (which, for the record nothing will ever beat).”

“A sweet tale of friendship that will be perfect to share before a sleepover… but don’t forget the favourite toy!”
