Snuggle up and read this classic snowy Kipper story, now in a durable board book format.

Beautifully capturing the joy of playing in the snow, this classic Kipper adventure in a durable board book is perfect to cuddle up with!

Kipper loves the snow and when he sees great white flakes tumbling down one morning, he can't wait to be out enjoying himself. Kipper's friend Tiger isn't nearly as good at snow games as Kipper is, because of his silly, woolly clothes - but they still manage to build a wonderful snowdog.

'The charmingly comical Inkpen, as always, hits the spot.' Guardian
'You simply cannot fail to win smiles with a new book about Kipper.' Daily Mail
