KIPPER'S TOYBOX is another entertaining installment chronicling the adventures of this amiable pup. Mick Inkpen imbues Kipper with plenty of character; parents and caregivers will smile wryly at Kipper's typically child-like actions, while kids identify with him. Inkpen understands kids, right down to the quirky objects that become a small child's treasures: an unmatched slipper, a novelty sock, and a tattered stuffed animal.

The full-color, whimsical illustrations are a perfect counterpart to the story, offering clues for observant readers. A wriggly pink tail or twitchy nose randomly pop up in the illustrations, making this tale more fun to read the second time around as readers pore over the pictures to locate the elusive mice. Situated against gleaming white backgrounds, the vivid pictures seem to leap off the pages.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
