A classic Kipper picture book about being afraid of the dark. Read by Dawn French.

Kipper and his friend Tiger are going camping in the woods. Tiger has a brand-new torch and Kipper has a storybook. Hopefully there aren’t any monsters around … But the wood is full of dark shadows and strange noises. And, the darker it gets, the more scared they become! Can Kipper and Tiger learn to overcome their fears?

Perfect for soothing fears and worries, this classic picture book shows that sometimes things aren’t quite as scary as they first seem!

Kipper has been a much-loved character for over 25 years.

My children absolutely LOVE all of Mick Inkpen's books, and I still love reading Kipper to them, even when it's for the hundreth time...
