Fans are saying...
"Trip Trap Trouble plays into the concept of being grateful for what you have, which is good lesson material for small children. It allows parents to open a discussion (it even has discussion points in the back of the book) in a positive way. The story is written in clever, humorous rhyme and the artwork is excellent. Trip Trap Trouble by Katie Pye is a good recommendation for children ages 4 and up, and perhaps older ones who struggle with gratitude."

"This book is a joy to read, with cute, appealing illustrations and rhyme scheme that's incredibly catchy and well-written. This would be a really fun one for parents to read aloud for story time with their kids, but kids would have just as much fun reading it themselves! "

"Another brilliant instalment in the series. A fun story about learning how to settle for what you have and that the grass is, in fact, not always greener on the other side. The ending was unexpected and hilarious.
