Product description

From standout author, Alex Latimer, and bestselling illustrator, David Litchfield, comes a beautiful picture book about finding – and holding on to – friendship.One bright afternoon, Pip met Egg. Pip is a seed from a glorious tree, and Egg is a bird’s egg from a nearby nest. When Pip and Egg first meet, they are almost the same size and shape – like two peas in a pod. But as their friendship grows, so do they – for Pip this means growing roots, but for Egg? Well, Egg grows wings, and she can’t wait to use them. Though Pip wishes he can follow Egg on her adventures, his roots are strong. So he watches his friend fly away. But true friends always find their way back to one another, and there are no truer friends than Pip and Egg. And if there’s one thing they learn, it’s that the circle of life will always lead them back to each other.

  • David Litchfield is the award-winning author/illustrator of The Bear and the Piano
  • Lyrical, reassuring story that children will love
  • Lush illustrations filled with warmth and emotion
  • Teaches children about the value of friendship

Our April 2021 Ages 5-6 Book of the Month

If you are looking for a book about the enduring power of friendship, let me introduce you to the adorable Pip and Egg. This book is an exploration of what it is to have a friend and to share experiences, to grow as individuals as nature intends and the subsequent varying paths that may lead you down (including the shifts and changes in friendship that may entail).

These two characters will nestle in your heart like a bird in the nest – they certainly have in mine. It’s extremely heartfelt but ultimately uplifting. I confess I may have had a little lump in my throat at the end… David Litchfield’s amazing art-style brings a warmth and timeless feel to the story and you may recognise his style from the award-winning The Bear and the Piano.
