This is a beautifully illustrated book from the Wibbly Pig series. It is ideal for small children and teaches them to count as Wibbly Pig gives away his balloons. My Granddaughter loves the story and is learning the names of the colours. It is charming, entertaining and a useful educational tool for small children.
A lovely little gift.

Having read Kipper many times to my children when they were younger I was eager to see what Wibbly Pig had to offer.

As expected the illustrations are charming with Wibbly Pig starting his day with ten novelty balloons which he is kind hearted enough to give to his friends. With so much to point out on each page there is plenty to keep a small child entertained although I'm not sure this is a book I would want to read every night. Although the narrative has a nice rhythm it doesn't rhyme all the way through.

This book is quite large and quite large for little hands but it does mean you can read it to more than one child and they can both see the pictures easily.

As an aside I don't understand why we teach our children to count backwards before they've really mastered going forwards although since so many books are written with this concept I'm sure it doesn't confuse them too much!

I've always been a fan of Mick Inkpen. His Wibbly Pig and Kipper stories are favourites with our kids (Aged 4.5 and 2.5) due to their clear storylines and simple colourful pictures. This latest book is no exception. Featuring Wibbly Pig, this nicely rhymed story tells of how Wibbly gives away his ten balloons to his friends. Being based around a countdown from 10 to zero it introduces the numbers nicely and it has some nice moral elements (such as the girl who is rude and demands her balloon) that can be used to reinforce a few behavioural lessons.

Overall very satisfying, a great title and another reason to include Mick Inkpen with Julia Donaldson as one of Britain's best children's authors.

This lovely book is filled with the delightful Mick Inkpen illustrations that make all his stories such a pleasure to share with children. The story is a good length and is written in rhyme. The book introduces numbers in a subtle way and there are many traits the pigs display that can be discussed with your child (kindness, greed, meanness etc). It has been a great hit with my 3 year old who has requested it time after time. She loves the story and all the lovely pictures. Great book.

Wibbly Pig has 10 Ballons in another in the series of Wibbly Pig books by Mick Inkpen. The book is a large square paperback with bright and colourfull illustrations. The story about Wibbly Pig and his 10 ballons. The story is nice and educational and helps children learn to count as Wibbly gives away his ballons. The book is fun to read as either a bedtime story (as I have done several times) or during the day to help your child develop their numeracy skills.

Anyone familiar with Mick Inkpen's series of Wibbly Pig or Kipper books will know what to expect here; a nicely illustrated, easy to read story that promotes learning in small children without being too obvious about it.

Wibbly Pig has 10 Balloons is a fun way to introduce or reinforce basic counting skills. It also offers some nice lessons about sharing and looking after your belongings.

Like a lot of children's books its written in verse, but don't expect rhyming on Gruffalo/Julia Donaldson levels. Whilst Mick Inkpen is a talented illustrator and his stories are entertaining, verse is not his strong suit. Half way through this book for example, he seems to give up on it entirely before returning to it at the end.

Then again this is a book that is very much aimed at small children. Its not one of those books that will 'entertain child and parent alike'. I enjoy reading it with my son because he enjoys it; not because it works on multiple levels that appeal to both of us.

So overall Wibbly Pig Has 10 Balloons is a nicely illustrated children's book that entertains and educates, but not much more than that.

I've never submitted a review but was compelled to do so after I read this book to my 2 and a half year old daughter. Wibbly pig gives his balloons away to various people who ask for one - including a rude little girl who demands a balloon and stamps her feet until she gets it. What sort of message is that? I know I don't want my daughter thinking that she can behave that way in order to gets something she wants. The book has had so many positive reviews that I'm wondering if I've missed the point, but to me the message to children is appalling.

Mick Inkpen has been writing books for a long time and Wibbly pig is a very popular character. A lovely pig who has lots of friends and together they go on many fantastic adventures. With all of Inkpen's books there is a message behind the story and this one is all about sharing - who will Wibbly Pig share his 10 bright balloons with?

Inkpen writes his stories in beautiful rhymes, which children can pick up easily and will love to help tell the story. There are great illustrations throughout the book too which will attract children's attention and maintain it throughout the story.

This would be a great book to give as a gift this festive period.
