    by Axel Scheffler

    Pip and Posy are friends (most of the time!) in this new series about the dramas of toddler life illustrated by Axel Scheffler. A best-selling illustrator of many favourite children’s picture books, including the award-winning The Gruffalo, which has been translated into over 40 languages. Axel was born in Hamburg, but now lives in London, where his artwork is increasingly inspired by his young daughter. He works in an attic studio overlooking a peaceful garden with a walnut tree and a family of foxes.

    "Pip and Posy are “simultaneously cosy and reassuring … Perfect for one to three year olds” “In these satisfyingly robust, colourful books Axel Scheffler, of Gruffalo fame, has created the wholly desirable preschool world of Pip and Posy. One hopes there are more to come!"Readings
    "He has enchanted children all across the world with his modern classic The Gruffalo, the tale of a mouse who manages to outwit his adversaries. Now author and illustrator Axel Scheffler is set to do it all over again with his latest book aimed at the under-fives."The Daily Mail
