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.
The best accolade though would probably be that my nephew enjoyed going through the book with me, and wanted it again and again.
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!
He is a bit young for the educational aspect but is enjoying it none the less, it has all the characters from other Wibbly books and is nicely illustrated.
I think it will be helpful for learning to count when he is a little older.
A lovely little gift.
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.
