Cuddle up with Kipper! A classic Kipper title, reissued for a new generation of children.

Kipper’s friend Pig only wants a pet for his birthday, so that is exactly what Kipper buys him: a little hamster called Roly. But Kipper starts to play with Roly before Pig’s birthday party and before he knows it he has missed the party and completely fallen for little Roly and cannot bear to give him away.

A charming story celebrating the joy of pets.

The loveable Kipper makes a welcome return in this super picture book ... Mick Inkpen has created another winner here: the balance between illustration and text could not be bettered. This is a must for the nursery and super for reading aloud and for extending a child's vocabulary
