4.0 out of 5 stars It's a story about Igglepiggle, oh wait.. no it's not, 23 Jun. 2010
This review is from: In the Night Garden: All Aboard the Ninky Nonk: Igglepiggle: Story 1 (Board book)
This book is part of a 4 book set, although it's not actually necessary to own the other books in the set (Ooh, pretty flower!, Time to wash faces! and The happy waving game!). The Igglepiggle book is the first in the set.

The book has a short, sweet and simple story to it. There are lots of of quotes from the programme, such as 'Oh no! It's the Ninky Nonk!' which In The Night Garden fans will love as it will be familar to them and they can even join in with it, even if they can't read the words.

Each page has a different colour which is not only visually pleasing but can aid children in learning their colours. On one page is writing (with silhoettes of characters in the background) and on the other page are big, glossy scenes and characters from In The Night Garden. The pictures are exactly as they appear on television and are nice to look at.

One thing that I found particularly surprising was that the story was not about Igglepiggle at all and was actually about the Ninky Nonk... even Makka Pakka got more pages than Igglepiggle! Why have 'Igglepiggle' written all over the book (along with his picture on the cover) when it's not even about him? I think instead of 'All aboard the Ninky Nonk' it should have been about Igglepiggle loosing his blanket or something of that nature...!

The book has 16 pages and starts on the very first page. The pages are quite thick and are easy for little fingers to turn, aswell as being quite durable. The whole book can be wiped clean too.

In The Night Garden fans are sure to love this book but it probably wont appeal to children who don't watch In The Night Garden because the characters and references will seem abit confusing.

Overall I think this is a good little book with a nice story. The pictures and colours are vibrant, and the length of the book is good - long enough to have a story but short enough to hold a young childs attention until the end. It's just a shame that the story wasn't more focused on Igglepiggle.
