Format: Kindle Edition
Pipsy is a little penguin who was born too early. However, although he is very small, Pipsy has a secret dream – he wants to fly. Pipsy’s mother offers to teach him to swim and, to his surprise, Pipsy finds that swimming is a little like flying underwater. The author of this book is also the illustrator and, although pretty, they are not particularly bright. I would suggest this story is more suitable for slightly older children, who are able to emphasise with Pipsy’s fear of the water. A nice story, although you might like the illustrations more than the child you are reading it to

My six year old son adores this story after only our first read and has immediately set to drawing his own Pipsy characters, no doubt inspired by the heart-warming illustrations.

The subject matter will also encourage beginner swimmers. My son has been quite nervous about swimming but now wants to learn to "twist and turn" in the water like Pipsy.

A wonderful book and a highly recommended gift.

The pictures in this children's book are charming and beautifully-drawn. There are nice jaunty rhymes with a sweet message: that your mother loves you and will keep you safe; that you should try something new, even if you don't think you'll like it; that your dreams can come true, even if it's not in the way you expect.

A delightful story with excellent rhythm and rhyme. My 4 year old grandson loved it, as did my younger speech and drama students. I will be buying more of this author's work.

This is such a gorgeous little rhyming story. Although my little ones are all grown up I've bought this to keep on my tablet for my little nieces and nephew.
