Kipper by Mick Inkpen

Kipper's basket is old and worn. His blanket is smelly and disgusting. But can Kipper find a better place to sleep? He tries a flowerpot like a bird, a nest like a squirrel and a lily-pad like a frog, but nothing seems quite as good as his old, worn basket and his lovely smelly blanket. This classic and bestselling picture book is packaged together with 10 classic episodes of Kipper narrated by Martin Clunes.Contains the episodes: 1. The Visitor, 2. The Umbrella, 3. The Seaside, 4. Nothing Ever Happens, 5. Pig's Present, 6. The Rainbow Puddle, 7. The Butterfly, 8. The Bleepers, Snowy Day, 10. Pig's Cousin.

I adore Kipper, the lovable dog who, along with his friends, has daily adventures. Children everywhere adore Kipper and I know my children have grown up with his stories.

This book has been re released to celebrate Kipper's 21st birthday this year and also includes a DVD which has 10 kipper episodes on it, all narrated by Martin Clunes.

As with all Kipper books, the story is great and the pictures are full of life and mischief, as Kipper himself is.

Although we have all the kipper books, and my children are 8 and 6, this book will take pride of place alongside them and will be well read. The publishers recommend kipper for age 0 - 5 years but as they say, a dog is for life, not just for Christmas, Kipper is a dog to accompany you through life.

Kipper would be a gift any child would love to receive and share at story time.

My daughters love Kipper too. It's always a favourite bedtime book. This book / DVD combination sounds really lovely.

Ah, we had a Kipper DVD and several books. Lovely gentle, nondemanding stories.
