Kipper

Inkpen, Mick; French, Dawn

Kipper first appeared on four legs in the Mick Inkpen timeless picture book The Blue Balloon. This picture book, Kipper, first published in 1991 made him the star of the show and he's been going from strength to strength ever since. Kipper's world is a world where anything can happen and he has enormous child appeal. He is a classic picture character now, loved by children the world over in the same way that Thomas the Tank or Peter Rabbit are loved. In this story, Kipper decides his basket is a mess: he throws out all his much-loved, dog-eared toys but then finds his basket very uncomfortable. He decides to find somewhere else to sleep: perhaps standing on one leg like a duck would be fun? Or even sitting on a lily pad like a frog. In the end, Kipper decides the best place to be is his lovely, cosy basket full of hsi favourite toys
