ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- Ed has a teddy, Lola a blanket, Penny her doll Elly, but Pipi has Little One, a well-loved soft doll. She shares everything with Little One, whose reassuring presence makes Pipi feel safe and understood. But one day, Little One is left behind in the park, and Pipi has to learn how to be brave by herself - and learns as well, that it's okay to miss her and that remembering brings her close. A gentle twist on the theme of the lost toy, reassuring and affirming, with soft and evocative pastel-hued, beautifully detailed illustrations. Would be the perfect book to talk about loss and change with a pre-schooler.  Lindy

Pippi loves her special Little One: she's soft like mist and always warm, and she's there for Pippi through night and day.

Together, they sit at the window and wonder at the world.

But one day, Little One goes missing. Pippi feels lost too, but perhaps she can learn to wonder at the world without Little One by her side ...

From a wonderful new pairing of Jane Godwin and Gabriel Evans comes a timeless story that reminds us nothing is ever truly lost.
