True to the In the Night Garden television series, this is a simple story. The Pontipines want to go for a ride, but the Ninky Nonk won’t stop for them.
If you’ve ever watched the show, you will hear the narrator and accompanying sounds in your head as you read this. It is very inline with the show, and as such, was a hit with my son. All it needed was the sounds, and he would have been jumping, pointing and yelling at the book.
This is a silly little story, but for some reason this series is a hit with kids. I was happy to find this book in the series, and may look around to find some of the other books to add to our collection.
