Axel Scheffler

Born in Hamburg, Germany in 1957, Axel Scheffler moved to England in 1982 and the author, illustrator and animator is now best known for his work with Julia Donaldson on a series of bestselling picture books. The duo first worked together with 1993's A Squash and A Squeeze and followed this up with many more children's favourites including the 1999 classic, The Gruffalo and Room on the Broom.

The Gruffalo has now sold over 10 million copies and been adapted into a TV special by the BBC. Known for his bright and distinctive style, Axel was formerly an illustrator for advertising companies, magazines and newspapers.

    Pip and Posy are typical toddlers: they are best friends and they have fun ...but sometimes, just like any other toddler, they get cross and sad, so sometimes it takes friendship, sharing and understanding - and a cuddle - to make things better. In Pip and Posy and the Little Puddle Pip comes to play at Posy's house. They have such a lovely time after their mid-afternoon snack and drink that Pip forgets he needs to go to the loo, and soon there's a little puddle on the floor. But everyone has accidents sometimes, so Posy mops it up, and lends him some clothes. The next time Pip needs a wee, he does it in the potty all by himself.
