Pip the gnome gets help decorating a Christmas tree from his friends robin, rabbit, and mouse. Discover the beautiful, natural things they bring—a red apple, soft woollen thread, golden straw, and a bright, shiny rosehip.

Colorful illustrations and simple words introduce very young children to the joy of preparing for Christmas. Soft, wintry colours illuminate the day from morning to dusk, ending with the candlelit tree.

Perfect for bedtime during Advent, the story ends as we say, “Happy Christmas, Pip.”

(Ages 1–3 years)

'Colorful illustrations and simple words in this utterly charming story introduce babies and toddlers to the joy of preparing for Christmas… Ideal and unreservedly recommended.'

—Midwest Book Review

'Kwant's art is the star of this simple story. Rendered in soft colored pencil or oil pastels, the scenes beautifully evoke the playful joy of decorating a tree.'

—Kirkus Reviews

'The illustrations have a soft crayon-like texture and are mainly in Christmas hues of blue, green, gold and red. A nice addition to the Pip the Gnome series and holiday stories.'

—Youth Services Book Review
