Kipper has a new friend who is rather grubby & is a little short of vocabulary!

`Honk!', said the gosling.
`Where did you come from?' said Kipper.
`Honk!' said the gosling again.
`You can go in the bath!' said Kipper.
`Honk!' said the gosling to the plastic duck, which didn't reply...

And so the story continues!

Kipper the dog makes friends with a honking goose which responds to him in the only way it knows how


My 2 year old really loves the little gosling & squeals with delight as he gets a bath & then blown across the room by the hair dryer.

Sweet & silly

Monty Python meets Looney Tunes. Surreal but inspired

The repetition of the honking sound throughout the text makes it great fun to share with pre-schoolers, as they love to join in too!

Mick Inkpen's illustrations are gorgeous

I'm doing well if I can get away with reading it to my 19 month old son only twice at bedtime. As soon as he sees it he starts saying "Honk!", then he reads it along with me

You have to admire the plot: cartoon dog has meaningful conversation with a duck whose entire vocabulary is the single word of the title

The giggles from this story are worth the many times I've had to read it in the last few days
