More conversation than narrative, this charming book poses all manner of questions worth pondering. Would you rather…tickle a monkey or dance with goats? The more harrowing questions, like Would you rather be… swallowed by a fish or sat on by a rhinoceros? are tempered by Burningham’s wonderfully silly drawings.
A classic not to be missed! Fearless, irrepressible, irreverent–the original wild child, Pippi is as endearing as ever. She will have you beside yourself in laughter and lining up to be her new best friend.
We read the version illustrated by Lauren Child (pictured above, yellow cover), whose whimsical style will be familiar to Charlie and Lola fans.
Suspenseful, clever and extremely funny.
