Kipper first appeared on four legs in the Mick Inkpen timeless picture book The Blue Balloon. This picture book, Kipper, first published in 1991 made him the star of the show and he's been going from strength to strength ever since. Kipper's world is a world where anything can happen and he has enormous child appeal. He is a classic picture character now, loved by children the world over in the same way that Thomas the Tank or Peter Rabbit are loved.
Someone or something has nibbled a hole in Kipper's toybox. When Kipper identifies the culprit he thinks his troubles are over - but in actual fact they are only just beginning.
