Pip and Posy: The New Friend

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 New Friend, Pip and Posy are having a fun day at the seaside, collecting shells and digging the sand. But when Posy has a nap, Pip makes friends with a boy called Zac. Zac is very cool – he has lots of amazing toys AND he’s really good at handstands. So, to her dismay, when Posy wakes up, she finds that Pip is more interested in playing with Zac than her.

A funny and dramatic story about working out that two’s company and three’s a . . . PARTY!

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

Take a look inside

“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).”

“This book is colourful, fun and engaging for younger readers. Perfect for a summer read.”
