Vips by the Stream
Vips by the StreamOskar Jonsson, illustrated by Oskar Jonsson
Meet Vips the shrew; a happy and inquisitive little creature that loves being in the woods and exploring the countryside.
It’s a beautiful day and Vips is down by the stream examining what floats on water and what doesn’t when he accidentally sends off a leaf with a little caterpillar on it. The leaf bobs off towards the dangerous rapids and Vips makes a quick decision – the caterpillar needs to be saved. His rescue operation soon turns into an exciting adventure with a rather unexpected ending.
Oskar Jonsson creates a fantastic world that you will never want to leave; a world in which the friendly and adventurous Vips teaches us just how wonderful it is to just sit down and look around you. Although Vips does find it hard to sit still for very long!
The book ends with facts about the animals and plants that we come across in the story.
