5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful collection of classics... 8 Nov 2009
Format:Hardcover
We love it... sad we again got the standard Kipper story, we now have it 4 times, 3 in collections.
Kippers Bear might have been nice, or another more interactive story to add to the theme of the other stories.

My girls love the stories, we went through it over and over for nearly 3 entire reads before they chose a different bed time story.. ironically Kippers Bear.

Can't fault the illustrations, or extra flaps to excite my 2 and 3 year olds. Love it! Every young child should get to experience Mick Inkpen's talents.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it 30 Nov 2010
Format:Hardcover
Beautiful hardback book. My son (20 months) loves 'Lullabyhullabaloo' so I thought I would get him the collection for Christmas. The illustrations are lovely and he really studies them.

A hit for us!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent quality, Great gift. 28 Oct 2010
By rilly
Format:Hardcover
I bought this book for my daughter, although it would be equally suitable for a boy. Excellent for an adult to read to a toddler or a yound child to read. Suitable up to around age 8. Excellent illustrations and made more interesting with the use of pop ups and open out pages. Lovely, quality, hard back book which makes a great gift.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great collection of Mick Inkpen! 19 Nov 2011
Format:Hardcover
A fantastic collection all-in-one book of the fabulous works of Mick Inkpen. I have recently purchased this for my daughter for her 5th birthday. She often gets books from the library and we have fell upon quite a few of the kipper books. These I find, are easy for her to understand and with big lettering throughout, it is contributing to her understanding of words. She also picks out words herself that she recognises. His books tend to be the one's that I will sit and go through and read one word at a time and they tally up with words from school, particularly as she is at Jolly Phonics stage. The use of the attached bookmark on a ribbon is very novel for her and thinks it's great that she can keep the place her next night's story! Also, use of flaps and pull out's make's more interest. I got into Mick Inkpen's talent from reading 'We are wearing out the naughty step', which is a favourite of both mine and my daughter's, mostly as it reminded me of real life and how it was wrote from an 'inside children's life' point of view. I realised that they was more to this guy than just the amazing Kipper!!! Fantastic present.

I was initially bought this book for my daughter's 1st birthday, she was a little young for it at that age, but from about 18 months plus (and she's nearly 4 now) she and my son have both loved these stories. They have pull out bits on the pages too, which again my kids loved. Since we have sought out more Mick Inkpen books as I love his stories and interactive pages of his books. I have also bought this book as birthday presents for friends who have also thoroughly enjoyed it.
