Pom and Pim
Publisher: Gecko Press
A little boy, Pom, and his stuffed toy, Pim, go out to play in the sunshine. Pom trips over. This seems like bad luck, but he finds some money on the ground. What luck!
He buys an ice-cream and shares it with Pim. The ice-cream gives Pom a tummy ache - that's bad luck again!
Pom lies on his bed and sees his balloon floating above him - what luck! Pom and Pim go outside again to play and the balloon pops. Still, Pom can use the rubber to make a little raincoat for his friend and as it's raining they can try it out!
A simple, happy story told with just a few words and spare yet warm, humorous illustrations.
