Vips Behind the Stones

Oskar 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.

Autumn winds blow and the little shrew Vips searches for his hat that has blown away.

The search takes him behind the stones on the edge of the wood. It is still and calm behind the stones and he sits there for a while enjoying the warmth of the sun. Suddenly there is a rustle.

Something that moves very fast – it’s a lizard! It turns out to be Vips’ good friend who also likes to run about, and play hide and seek. But before Vips knows what’s happening, his pal ends up in real trouble…

In vibrant watercolour pictures, Oskar Jonsson creates a won derful world that inspires you to dive right in; a world in which the friendly and adventurous Vips teaches us how wonderful it is to just sit down and look around you. But of course, Vips never stays put for that long…

The book ends with facts about lizards. This is the fourth standalone book about Vips.
