Additional Information

Wibbly Pig has been to a party and is holding tight to his party bag. He’s also got a balloon on a string, and his favourite cuddly toy, Pigley. But Wibbly is very curious to see what’s in his party bag! Can he find out, or is he carrying too many things? Don’t forget to hold tight to Pigley, Wibbly! Ooops… Starring cute-as-a-button Wibbly Pig, this is an adorable story of separation and reunion from a much-loved author, exploring a situation that every child and grown-up will recognise.

“The text snakes up and across the page as Pigley floats away and the simplicity of the illustrations convey so much wit and emotion. A delight.” Daily Mail

“This is a book for every nursery collection whether at home or at school.” Books For Keeps

Mick Inkpen

Mick Inkpen is one of the most popular author/illustrators in the world. His books have sold over 4 million copies, and have been translated into over twenty different languages. His best-loved characters are probably Kipper and Wibbly Pig – who are both stars of their very own TV series!

He began his career as a graphic designer, and worked with another children’s author Nick Butterworth (of Percy the Park Keeper fame) on a cartoon strip for the Sunday Express. In 1989 The Blue Balloon was published to great acclaim, and established him as an important and original voice in children’s picture books. He and his wife, Debbie, also had children of their own by this point: “Without the experience of having children of my own I doubt that I would have been capable of writing effectively for children. And yet it’s true that good work really springs from trying to please yourself”

Mick lives in Essex with his wife and two children.

He began his career as a graphic designer, declining a place to study English at Cambridge University. During this period he worked with Nick Butterworth, a fellow children’s author, from whom he learned design and typography. Together they developed a cartoon strip for the Sunday Express magazine, later to become a first series of children’s picture books. They also worked in children’s television.

In 1989 The Blue Balloon established him as a truly original voice in children’s picture books, by which time Mick and his wife Debbie had two children of their own. “Without the experience of having children of my own I doubt that I would have been capable of writing effectively for children. And yet it’s true that good work really springs from trying to please yourself”
