The Lovereading4Kids comment
April 2012 Book of the Month. Best known for creating the pictures for the Gruffalo, Axel Scheffler has created a perfect story for pre-school. How can Pip’s friends cheer him up when his beautiful red balloon goes POP! ? Luckily Posy comes up with a really good idea. Soon Pip and Posy and all their friends are enjoying bubbles. Luckily, there are loads of them – and they always pop. Now Pip doesn’t mind at all. ~ Julia Eccleshare

Pip is very proud of his big red balloon. But when he lets the balloon go and it pops, he is inconsolable. Luckily, Posy has a clever idea to cheer up her friend and soon they are having fun again!
