Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-K-Reminiscent of Ezra Jack Keats's Snowy Day (Viking, 1962), this satisfying story takes a young dog on a universal winter adventure. Jumping out of his basket with a "Yes! Yes!," Kipper enthusiastically greets the day, where the snow awaits him. Upon discovering the joy of making body images (dog angels?), the pup runs off to find his best friend Tiger, a Scotty. The two spend the day on the hill, leaving behind a giant snow dog. Despite Tiger's repeated warning that a warm wind is coming, their creation lasts for three weeks. This book is fun, pleasurable, and pleasant. The precise, energetic language uses descriptive similes that will augment readers' appreciation of the wintry events. The large typeface is matched with clear, simple watercolor illustrations that are expressive and appealing. Perfect for group sharing, this title is sure to become a wintertime favorite.

Review

Kipper has touched a chord with children and parents alike. Practical Parenting Writer and illustrator Mick Inkpen has created some of the most memorable characters for pre-schoolers, and this wonderful winter tale features cheery canine Kipper. Safeway Magazine (December 1998) Young children will be kept amused by plenty of snow and frolics. Safeway Magazine (December 1998) The story is sweet. All you want to do is drink in the detail of the unparalleled artistry. Dublin Sunday Independent

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Suzanne Amara VINE VOICE on February 20, 2000
Format: Hardcover
We discovered Kipper by way of the Nick Jr. TV show, and were very glad to find how very well done the Kipper books are. This simple but very pleasing tale of Kipper and Tiger enjoying the snow really is a popular one in our house. They love hearing about the dogs rolling down the hill, Tiger being sure the snow will be gone soon, and the dogs making their version of snow animals. Recently when we got a good sized snow, both of my boys acted out a lot of what they had heard in this book in the real snow!

Format: Paperback
In this fun and cheery book, Kipper awakens to find that it has snowed outside. Grabbing his scarf, he heads outside to explore the new-fallen snow. Soon, he's making tracks and snow dogs all across the garden. He ventures to Big Hill, where he finds his friend Tiger. Tiger is dressed in silly clothes that the snow sticks to. Kipper shows his snow dog game to Tiger, but Tiger is unable to get up, and soon he's rolling head over heels down the hill. Instead of being scared, Tiger enjoys this activity very much. Tiger and Kipper spend the rest of their day rolling down the hill, and they build a huge snow dog at the bottom.

This is an excellent book for preschool children. The story is very fun, and the pictures are bright and colorful. My children are big fans of the Kipper television show, and this is one of their favorite books to hear when going to bed. I highly recommend this fun book. Your children will enjoy watching Tiger and Kipper play in the snow.

A Kid's Review on March 16, 2003
Format: Paperback
I enjoyed this book very much. This book reminded me of all the fun times my friends and I had when we were younger. I liked this book also, because of the things that Kipper, and Tiger do together, they make their own fun. Even though Tiger dos not like the silly woolly snow suit, they make it funny. I liked when they were rolling down the hill, then how they used all the snow to make a dog.
Kipper and Tiger will always find ways to have fun. This great variety of books as well as the television series, and movies that have been made, Kipper is vey popular. I would recommend this book for children ages 2-8, because I think anyone can enjoy this book.
