Wibbly Pig

A couple of weeks ago my mum returned from her trip to the UK and kindly brought these home for me.

Being a huge fan of Mick Inkpen's work, I was so thrilled to receive these to add to my collection. Along with Kipper, here is another character , Wibbly Pig. Isn't he adorable? Similar to Kipper, he is charming, sweet and always up to exploring his surroundings.

I am really hoping that the books and tv series will transfer over here soon. It is possible to order via Amazon but you have to pay extra, of course.

I'm so happy you posted this Rozzita!

I am a HUGE fan of Mick too and of Nick Butterworth for that matter. They are both very similar in style. I just love the simplicity of their work and how cute those characters are!

I for one adore Kipper, the books and tv series. I used to watch it with my kids when they were little, now I watch it by myself.. LOL! :o)

We've read Wibbly too. I actually didn't realize it was the same artist/author as Kipper!

I love Wibbly. He's such a lovely drawn character and it's such a nice name to say.
When I used to work in a bookshop a few years back, we used to crowd round when new Wibbly Pig books came in.
So simple, yet such a lot in them somehow.
