Pip and Posy: The Scary Monster


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 Scary Monster, Posy is happily baking cakes when a hairy monster appears at her door! Poor Posy, she feels quite alarmed – until she notices that it’s not a real monster after all, but Pip dressed in a very silly costume. A funny, not-very-scary story for the very young, with gentle lessons about being brave and taking turns.

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