Mister Pip is ready for his dinner, and then wants to find a quiet place to sleep. But it’s not as easy as it sounds. He settles into each of his favourite spots but between the VROOOM of the vacuum cleaner, the persistent RING-RING of the telephone, and the incessant COO COO of canoodling pigeons, he is disturbed and woken at every turn. Not even his favourite pot plant can offer Mister Pip the peace he needs. Will he ever find somewhere tranquil to rest his head?
Thereza Rowe’s stylishly illustrated story is sure to strike a chord with pre-schoolers who will love making the book’s sounds out loud as much as they’ll adore Mister Pip himself.
