Little Pip is a very shy little mouse, he longs to be able to play with Milly and Spike but he is too shy to ask. he thinks they might play with him if he had something to give them. Then he sees a rainbow and thinks that would be the perfect gift to start a friendship with. The problem is it is just too far away.
This is a really wonderful little tale of bravery and friendship. The text is lovely and easy to follow and there is enough of it to keep an older picture book reader interested. The theme is handled with easy grace in a manner that makes it accessible to discussions if you want to talk to your children about it, or you can just read it as a story that speaks for itself. The illustrations are simple and beautiful. It all works together to give a heartwarming story that will leave you feeling good at bedtime, or any other time for that matter.
