Review: Pip and Posy: The Little Puddle / The Super Scooter

Pip the bunny and Posy the mouse are the sweetest of friends. In The Little Puddle, Pip drops by Posy’s house to play. They have a wonderful time playing babies, trains, pretending to be lions, having a delicious snack – all those fabulously fun things that take a little one’s attention away from the boring things in life… like needing to wee.

When that need makes itself uncompromisingly known, poor Pip is mighty embarrassed, but Posy handles the situation consummate ease. She does a little mopping, she helps him with a change of clothes, then – and the most important thing of all – engages Pip in a little bit of painting (whilst wearing a frock!).

After a bath, we learn that little puddles are just no biggie.

In The Super Scooter, Pip and Posy have a little bit of an altercation over a scooter, but when Posy gets hurt, the friends quickly realize how important it is to be there for each other, and not fuss over the little things.

Axel Scheffler, the illustrator of Julia Donaldson’s The Gruffalo, has penned sweet stories that empathise with kids and their daily dilemmas and joys. His iconic illustrations and simple text make for a warm bedtime (and afternoon time and morning time) read for toddlers.
