Kipper opens his cornflakes and discovers treasure inside. A plastic wiggly thing, which turns out to be the biggest, most beautiful beach ball ever. He and Tiger have wonderful fun with their new toy, splashing by the sea in the sun, until they hear a small - pop! But there's always another box of cornflakes and more treasure to be found.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another super story from Mick Inkpen 17 Jan 2008
about the lovable character, `Kipper' and his cereal packet `free gift`!

'The free gift on Kipper's cornflakes turns out to be the fattest, shiniest, beachiest ball he has ever seen.
But how long will it last?'

When the 'free gift' drops into his cereal bowl, Kipper takes it off to his friend Tiger's house and the pair ponder over the 'colourful, wrinkly sort of thing', before setting off on another adventure.

32 high quality shiny pages, packed full of exciting, descriptive text and endearing illustrations, in the popular 2-page spread format.

Example of text:

'The sea grabbed it. And for a moment it stopped spinning, as if to catch its breath, before a wave whooshed up the beach and sucked it out into the surf.
'Come back!' shouted Kipper. But by the time Kipper and Tiger reached the water's edge, the ball was bobbing far out among the waves.
'Come back!'

5.0 out of 5 stars Kipper's Beach Ball 6 Sep 2003
By A Customer
This is one of the longer Kipper stories which made it perfect for reading to both my children ages 3 and 6. My 3 yr old boy chose it every night for over a week and really enjoyed it. There are so many references to every day life its hard not to love this Kipper classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the best book on the shelf! 27 May 2012
We were given this book when my son was nearly 4 and two years on, we both still love to read this story.

Believe me, my house is overriden with books, dating back 9 years. Some books stand the test of being repeatedly read and some don't. I never groan when my son picks this one - we particularly like the 'plasticky sort of smell' bit.

I can not express how lovely this story is. Even I can remember losing a beachball at the seaside and understand the disappointment of not finding that much anticipated toy in the cereal box - they don't do it anymore do they? This aside, the lovely illustrations and the clear wording really make this story a treasure. It'll be one for the loft for the grandchildren in years to come and I don't say that often!

I wouldn't hesitate recommending this book for a girl or boy - perfect for 2 and up.
