Welcome to Pip Street! The very ordinary place where extraordinary
things happen. Quirky black-and-white illustrations throughout
as well as fun activity sheets at the back.Who turned out
all the lights? Oh, no one - it's a power cut. Which is bad news
for usually brave Bobby Cobbler, because he's scared of the dark.
And worse luck for Bobby, this is not just one random out of the
blue power cut - it's the beginning of a plague of power cuts!
What could be causing them? Something on Pip Street isn't right
that's for sure and just between you and me, I think it might be
to do with that pig with the spooky hypnotic eyes who's living in
Jeff the Chalk's house. But that's for Bobby and Imelda to figure
out, just as soon as they find their torches."Utterly
charming and delightful" Mel Giedroyc
