From the illustrator of 'The Gruffalo' comes this brilliantly observed story starring two best friends about the dramas of pre-school life - perfectly pitched for potty training toddlers.


Pip and Posy: The Little Puddle by Axel Scheffler

Pip and Posy are typical toddlers: they are best friends and they have fun...but sometimes, just like any other toddler, they get cross and sad, so sometimes it takes friendship, sharing and understanding - and a cuddle - to make things better. In Pip and Posy and the Little Puddle Pip comes to play at Posy's house. They have such a lovely time after their mid-afternoon snack and drink that Pip forgets he needs to go to the loo, and soon there's a little puddle on the floor. But everyone has accidents sometimes, so Posy mops it up, and lends him some clothes. The next time Pip needs a wee, he does it in the potty all by himself.

About the Author

Axel Scheffler

Axel Scheffler was born in Hamburg, Germany. At school he was good at art, but didn't think of a career in illustration until he won a cuddly purple cow in a drawing competition. He moved to England in 1982 to learn English and study illustration at the Bath Academy of Art and then set up home in London. Axel illustrated a number of books for various publishers, and in 1993 he was suggested as the illustrator for Julia Donaldson's first picture book text, A Squash and a Squeeze. This was the start of a hugely successful partnership: their bestselling modern classic, The Gruffalo, has sold over three-and-a-half million copies worldwide, and the TV animation was broadcast on Christmas day 2009. Axel has illustrated a number of other highly successful books, including Muddle Farm, and his books have been translated into 42 languages. Axel lives in London with his partner and young daughter.
