The Lovereading4Kids comment

Fabulous illustrations, wonderful rhyming text with not a word out of place; this is a book that no nursery bookshelf can be without. Guaranteed to have huge appeal with babies and young toddlers. It’s definitely the kind of book that will live long in the mind of children and parents for it’s a pleasure for parents to read and children to listen to or as they get older read for themselves.


Peepo! by Allan Ahlberg

This work follows a baby through the day. A series of holes peeping through to the next page leads the young child on to the next stage of the day, giving a hint of what is to come.


'Another gem from the Ahlbergs. A baby plays peepo with his family, such a simple idea but a really appealing picture book.' The Bookseller

About the Author

Allan Ahlberg

As a child

Allan always dreamed of being a writer, but tried his hand at many other jobs before he achieved his ambition. He was a postman, grave-digger, plumber's mate and teacher - it was teaching that gave him such sharp insights into the minds of children, and enabled him to write his perfectly observed poetry about primary school life

Allan has collaborated with many illustrators, including Andre Amstutz, Gillian Tyler and Katharine McEwen, as well as his late wife, Janet Ahlberg (nee Hall) and his daughter Jessica Ahlberg. He has won numerous awards for his books including, the Kurt Maschler Award in 1986, The Children's Book Award in 1987, the Blue Peter Book Award 2001, and The Children's Book Award: Books for Young Children award 2002.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
