Blue-eyed Pip is juicy and sweet but mightily sassy too! She eats watermelon for breakfast, lunch and tea, sharing with no one, no matter how hard they try. One day, though, the watermelon supply dries up. There are no watermelons at the little shop, the big shop, or the online shop. Not one. Pip has a sinking feeling in her hungry little tummy.
That is until she remembers all those watermelon pips she used to spit over the fence while swinging on her tyre swing! She scales the fence, and sure enough, right there is a joyous garden of homegrown watermelons! Pip is overjoyed! But, just as she's about to begin devouring that juicy flesh, she remembers all the hungry faces with whom she never shares.
She knows what she has to do! And, so begins one of the most beautiful endings to one of the most heartwarming picture books you're ever likely to read.
An utterly gorgeous kids' book about sustainability and sharing.
