    1. Always love Kipper illustrations. Yet this book seemed to "explain" more of what was going on in the pictures, rather than just let the action take place and have the reader figure it out. The TV show allowed for this MUCH more. Perhaps why I love it so much. But it's still a cute story. Though I was hoping to see what Kipper's present from Pig was. I think our copy's batteries are dead, as I think I was supposed to see Arnold's fabulous hat at the end.


    2. A tradition in the Plank household to read this to my daughter before bed on Christmas Eve. She's now 15 but the tradition continues.


    3. We love Kipper and this was a brilliant addition to our Christmas story collection. We had a hard copy that had a flashing red light at the end!


    4. Kipper and friends are decorating his house and talking about all the fun of the season--is anticipation better, or is the haul itself the attraction? Arnold has important news for Kipper, but as usual no one pays attention. I remember that feeling as a small child; you were told "hush, we're talking" and when whatever it was finally happened, the adults were surprised!We were both amused by Kipper being able to uproot a fir tree--small as it was, it could never happen! But I guess Kipper's not [...]


    5. Mick Inkpen has created one of the best-loved characters in picture books- Kipper. Always popular, Inkpen's colourful, bold pictures are great for sharing either 1-1 or in a group, and the stories are touching and humorous. Kipper's Christmas Eve is no exception. Both children and adults are charmed by the simplicity of the Kipper books, and in this tale he is preparing for Christmas Day. The young audience will be able to appreciate the festive routines of collecting a tree, opening presents an [...]


    6. Kipper's Christmas book gets off to a great start. ""Which is best?"" said Kipper to himself. ""Christmas Day? Or Christmas Eve? Presents? Or expecting presents?"" That's such a great question. Is expecting presents better than actual presents? Often the expectation of an event or a holiday is more than half the fun of the real thing. Kipper decides of course (the title gives it away) prefers Christmas Eve and expecting presents.


    7. There is only a few Kipper books I enjoy and I thought this might be one of them but it wasn't. Nothing much really happened and we turned the story into a game by looking for the mouse - if not the story would have been very dull



    8. I didn't enjoy this as much as I enjoyed Kipper. It's okay for a seasonal book but I preferred the original.
