Description

A delightful picture book about the fun you can have when you unplug yourself and get outside! From the author of the much-loved Mr Panda series.

Blip spends all day plugged into her computer, playing games and having fun. But when there's a power cut, Blip goes down the stairs and out the front door, where she discovers playing games and having fun... outside! Isn't it wonderful to be unplugged?

This simple story is perfect for families trying to strike the right balance between screen time and outdoor play.

Steve Antony is the winner of the Evening Standard Oscar's First Book Prize. He's been nominated for the Kate Greenaway Medal and shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize.
