When Posy goes to stay at Pip’s house they have lots of fun together before bedtime. But just as they switch out the light, disaster strikes: Posy realises that she has forgotten her favourite frog toy. Keen to help his distraught friend, Pip offers Posy a range of different toys to substitute for her frog, including his own favourite frog money box. But none of them will do: “That’s the wrong frog!” Posy wails. It is only when Pip gives Posy his own, very favourite, pig toy that Posy is comforted and the friends can get a good night’s sleep, at last.

Pip and Posy books are great for helping young children develop social and self-care skills as well as managing feelings.

“These simple stories are simultaneously cosy and reassuring while celebrating the growing independence of the young. Perfect for one to three year olds.” – Readings

“We’ve been huge Pip and Posy fans for what feels like a lifetime… so it was a big day indeed when a NEW book came out! The New Friend is everything you’d expect from Scheffler and we all love it. I’d say it’s gone in above The Little Puddle and The Scary Monster but below The Snowy Day and The Bedtime Frog (which, for the record nothing will ever beat).” – 2 Boys 1 Mum

“A sweet tale of friendship that will be perfect to share before a sleepover… but don’t forget the favourite toy!” – Parents in Touch
