16pp., board book., RRP $A9.99
Two new stories featuring this popular character and her family, bringing to life recognisable activities that our youngest readers will relate to.
Peppa decides to have an Easter egg hunt in the garden and surprise her friends when she and George dress up as the Easter Bunny and then has lots of fun when her friends come over for a play date.
Peppa Pig, described by one writer as one with “stick-figure limbs and head shaped like a travel hairdryer that’s been flattened by a steamroller”, and her family have been entertaining little ones on screen and in print around the world since 2004 and thus the characters are so familiar to most children that there is no need to explain relationships and so forth so the action can start right away in a predictable development of the storyline – there is an event happening, Peppa has a problem to solve, her family help her solve it and everyone has lots of fun enjoying themselves. Simple but very effective for enticing littlies to print and reading and some mums have even been overheard asking, “What would Peppa do?” when a child has a problem that needs solving.
