Hodder Children's, 2007
(Age 2-5) This is an endearing story with beautiful illustrations from Mick Inkpen . Wibbly Pig's friend is a big bear who cannot eat his peas with a spoon or brush his teeth or comb his hair but Wibbly Pig loves him anyway.
A short entertaining picture book, the engaging illustrations will appeal.The story will reinforce the idea for young children that it doesn't matter how skilful or clever you are, someone will still love you. Bear is enthusiastic and loving and this is what counts.
Young children are sure to love Wibbly Pig and adults who read this aloud will be left feeling happy and satisfied with this story.
