NZD $15.99

Pip and Posy are friends (most of the time!) in this series about the dramas of toddler life created by Axel Scheffler, whose books, including the modern classic, The Gruffalo - which has sold more than two million copies world-wide - have been translated into 29 languages. This paperback edition includes a free audio reading.

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 this book, 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.

Comes with a free audio reading featuring music and using children's voices - accessible anywhere and anytime you're connected to the internet by scanning a QR code on your smartphone or tablet.

Author bio:

Axel 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 Kate Wilson suggested him 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.
