Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Pip is having a great time riding his scooter. He can take it up and down hills and he is so skilled that he can even perform a few tricks. Posy appears pushing her green frog in stroller. She is fascinated by Pip's scooter and so she takes it and heads off for a ride. She had no experience so the inevitable happens; Posy falls off the scooter and she is crying. Pip is every resourceful and he tends to Posy's scraped knee and Posy realizes that she should not have taken Pip's scooter. She apologizes and thanks him for taking care of her. They hug and head off to play somewhere where it is a bit safer—the sandbox. The illustrations tell the story just as clearly as the text. They are filled with engaging anthropomorphic animals in a setting that most children will recognize and relate to. It is an easy way to teach a good lesson. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
School Library Journal
PreS—Two animal pals navigate early childhood friendship with heart and humor. In the first book, they drink some juice and have so much fun playing that Pip forgets to notice his body's cues. "Suddenly, there was a little puddle on the floor. Oh, no! "'It's OK, Pip,' said Posy. 'Everyone has accidents sometimes.'" They clean up, he borrows a dress to wear, and they spend the rest of the day painting pictures. In the second title, Posy is envious of Pip's scooter. She takes it without permission, finds navigating it more difficult than it looks, and falls off. Pip comforts her and Posy apologizes for taking the scooter. "Then they went to play in the sand where it was nice and soft." In the end they ride off together—slowly. The gouache illustrations done in bright colors are as sweet and playful as the stories, and the endearing young creatures have humorously expressive faces. Fun details add interest without distracting from the main action. These tender and funny stories will entertain young children.—Amelia Jenkins, Juneau Public Library, AK
From the Publisher
In Axel Scheffler's sweet story, a rabbit named Pip is zipping through the park on his scooter when he meets his mouse friend, Posy, who wants to try Pip's scooter. The distress we see on Pip's face will resonate with any child who has ever been in his position: Your friend may really like your toy, but you really, really don't want her to take it! The final scenes of reconciliation bring these stressful events to a gentle, age-appropriate conclusion.
—Wall Street Journal
