The very first classic Kipper picture book, perfect for sharing together at cuddle time.

Kipper’s basket is old and worn, so he decides to look for a new place to sleep! Maybe he could build a nest like the squirrels, stand on one leg like the ducks … Or sit on a lily-pad like the frogs? But, eventually, Kipper realises that there’s nowhere quite like his cosy basket, surrounded by all his favourite toys.

With a special gold cover, this charming story will make the perfect gift.

Kipper has been a much-loved picture book character for over 25 years.

“You simply cannot fail to win smiles with a new book about Kipper.” – Daily Mail
