A delightfully upbeat read-aloud picture book, perfect to share with very young children.

Bounce bounce, ding-a-ling, ring ring, let's sing! I feel joy! From an award-winning author and illustrator pairing comes an irresistibly energetic read-aloud picture book. Join the bouncy little kitten as she plays with her favourite toy and - uh oh - falls down with a trip-trip-slip. But with a little hug, a kiss and a squeeze, she's going to be just fine. A truly joyful celebration of the love between parent and child.
