My eldest daughter has loved Peppa Pig for the past couple of years now and she also has an obsession with stickers so when I saw this book I thought it was the perfect combination for keeping her amused, I wasn't the only one who thought so either as my Mam bought her exactly the same one so she has ended up with two of them.
==Price and Availability==
I bought the book from Asda when I was doing my weekly shop and paid £3.99 although the RRP for the book is £5.99, I haven't seen the book in any other shops but have seen it on Amazon for £4.19 with free delivery. Knowing how my daughter loves sticking I knew that the book would be well received and would be great value as it would keep her amused.
The book is just bigger than A4 size and has a glossy cardboard cover on it, on the front of the book there is the logo for Peppa Pig along with the title of the book at the top. There is a picture of Peppa and George pig on the front in exploring clothing and hats and then bit of a jungle scene behind them. The cover is bright but only has yellow, green, pink and browns on it so it could have been much more colourful. On the back of the book it gives you a web address where you can apparently star in your very own Peppa book although we haven't tried it here is the address for anyone who is interested www.ladybird.com/peppaandme.
==Inside the Book==
The idea of the book is that there are a number of pages which are scenes from Peppa shows and other scenes such as the moon and then there are numerous pages of stickers that can be used on the pages to complete the scenes. Inside the book there is a contents page to tell you what scenes can be found on each page, the scenes included are,
Fun in the Sun
Fire Engine Rescue
Shake, Rattle and Bang
Follow the Rainbow
As you can see from the list you get a good number of scenes for your child to complete and they cover a wide range of different places. The pages are all brightly coloured and are drawn bold so that is not too much detailing on each page before the stickers are added. On each page you have the title from the contents page and then a little bit about the scene for example of the Dinosaur! Grr! Page it sys "George is imagining he's a real live dinosaur, Decorate this prehistoric scene with dinosaur friends for George to play with." On the bottom of each page there is a page number and each page number is in a little pig shaped head which I think is rather cute.
In the middle of the book you get 8 full pages of stickers, each page is sectioned off with lines and then the name of the page that the stickers are for is written within the section so it is easy to see which page they are for, I think it might have been better to include the page number in the section too as children tend to learn numbers before they can read and this would make it easier for younger children.
My daughter loves this book we have completed it once and we are now onto the second book, she needs a little bit of help to know which stickers go with which page as although she knows her letters by the time she has looked at the words on the stickers page she has forgotten what she is looking for by the time she looks at the contents page. The stickers are easy to use and they peel away form the sheets easily without tearing which is where some stickers seem to fall down with childrens books. The pages in the book are on thick paper and have a glossy finish so they look and feel like great quality. My daughter has really enjoyed the book and she uses the pictures to test what characters her sister knows from the show which is a little advanced considering her sister doesn't talk much yet so nearly everyone is pig according to her. I couldn't ask for any more from a sticker book and would have quite gladly paid the RRP for the book of course like anyone I love a bargain so was pleased to buy it cheaper.
