Pip and Posy: The Friendly Snail

author: Camilla Reid
illustrator: Axel Scheffler

series name:
Pip and Posy

Pip and Posy are spending the afternoon outside, but Pip wants to do some quiet gardening and Posy wants to have fun playing noisy games. When Posyís racket frightens Pipís new snail friend back into its shell, Pip gets mad at her . . . Oh dear! But then a bird tries to take Pip's snail, and it turns out Posyís loud voice can be quite useful after all! A heartwarming, relatable story about valuing one anotherís differences.

Pip and Posy are friends (most of the time!) in the newest title in this series about the dramas of toddler life.
