Here’s a little baby

One, two three

Standing in his cot

What does he see?


Peepo! follows a baby through the day in a style full of wit, charm and ingenuity.

A series of holes peeping through to the next page leads the child on to the next stage in the day, giving a hint of what is to come.

An original book that has long delighted young children – and their parents!
