Kipper and Roly
Publisher: Hodder Children's Books
It is Pig's birthday and he tells all his friends he would like a little pet for a present. Kipper buys Pig a hamster, names him Roly and enjoys playing with him so much he becomes very fond of him.
When Kipper arrives at Pig's birthday party Pig has already received a rabbit, a mouse, two guinea pigs and a stick insect. He likes Roly very much, but doesn't really need another pet.
Pig has a brilliant idea; he asks Kipper to look after Roly for him. Kipper is overjoyed. Here is another gentle and uplifting story about Kipper and his friends. It is ideal for use with individual children and Mick Inkpen's delightful, expressive illustrations can be seen by whole groups too.
