This was my favourite book when I was five and still read it with relish now at 25. Even though the new illustrated version of Plop is lovely, and perhaps more appealing to visual-orientated children, I adore this paperback version with the black and white drawings. Plop with his little bobbles and heart-shaped ruff, the sock for Father Christmas and the old lady reminiscing! These pictures really gave the book its character for me and I had to buy a copy for my now two-year-old to enjoy.
I would let him have mine but I need it!
Classic book, buy it for nostalgia and enjoy Plop's coming of age tale in its original style!
