From the publisher:
Pip and Posy: The Super Scooter
In Pip and Posy and the Super Scooter, Posy snatches Pip's scooter and tries to ride it. Unfortunately, it's harder than it looks and she falls off, giving herself a nasty cut. Though Pip was very cross, he comes running to help Posy in her moment of need, giving her a plaster for her sore knee. Posy apologises to Pip, and together they build a sandcastle in the sandpit, where it's nice and soft.
Pip and Posy: The Little Puddle
In The Little Puddle, Pip comes to play at Posy's house. The friends have such a fun time playing that Pip forgets he needs to go to the loo, and soon there's a little puddle on the floor. But everyone has accidents sometimes, so Posy mops it up, and lends him some clothes. The next time Pip needs a wee, he does it in the potty all by himself.
Pip and Posy: The Scary Monster
In The Scary Monster, Posy is happily baking cakes when a hairy monster appears at her door! Poor Posy, she feels quite alarmed - until she notices that it's not a real monster after all, but Pip dressed in a very silly costume. A funny, not-very-scary story for the very young, with gentle lessons about being brave and taking turns.
Pip and Posy: The Snowy Day
In The Snowy Day, Pip and Posy take care to wrap up well so they will keep warm outdoors. They have all sorts of fun until they decide to build a snowman, and that's when things start to go wrong - Pip wants to build a snow RABBIT but Posy wants a snow MOUSE! An argument erupts and very soon both friends are cold and wet, and very sad indeed. Oh dear! Happily the friends resolve their differences over a cosy craft session indoors.
Pip and Posy: The Big Balloon
In The Big Balloon, Pip is very proud of his big red balloon. But when he lets the balloon go and then it pops, he is inconsolable. Luckily, Posy has a clever idea to cheer up her friend and soon they are having fun again!
Pip and Posy: The Bedtime Frog
In The Bedtime Frog, Posy goes for a sleepover at Pip's house. The friends have lots of fun together before bedtime. But just as they switch out the light, disaster strikes - Posy realises that she has forgotten her favourite frog toy. Keen to help his distraught friend, Pip offers Posy a range of different toys to substitute for her frog, including his own favourite frog money box. But none of them will do - "That's the wrong frog!" Posy wails. It is only when Pip gives Posy his own, very favourite, pig toy that Posy is comforted and the friends can get a good night's sleep, at last.
Pip and Posy: The New Friend
In The New Friend, Pip and Posy are having a fun day at the seaside, collecting shells and digging the sand. But when Posy has a nap, Pip makes friends with a boy called Zac. Zac is very cool - he has lots of amazing toys AND he's really good at handstands. So, to her dismay, when Posy wakes up, she finds that Pip is more interested in playing with Zac than her.
A funny and dramatic story about working out that two's company and three's a, PARTY!
Pip and Posy: The Friendly Snail
In The Friendly Snail, Pip and Posy are spending a lovely afternoon outside, but while Pip wants to do some quiet gardening, Posy wants to have fun playing noisy games.
When Posy's racket frightens Pip's new snail friend back into its shell, Pip gets cross, oh dear! But then a big, greedy bird tries to take Pip's snail, and it turns out Posy's loud voice can be quite useful, after all!
A heart-warming, relatable story about valuing each other's differences.
