Synopsis

Pip the Gnome by Admar Kwant

Pip the gnome plays happily with his woodland friends, the mouse, robin, wren and spider. Follow them through spring, summer, into autumn and then winter. The colourful illustrations and simple words introduce very young children to the seasons, with bright green leaves in spring, warm sunshine in summer, blustery wind in autumn and snowfall in winter. Perfect for bedtime, the story ends as we look up at the stars and say good night to Pip.

Reviews

'These are delightful books for the youngest readers to practice talking about the pictures and page turning and for emergent readers to have a go , supported by an adult.'

, April 2011. 'Simple language is combined with striking illustrations.

. 'This is a comforting bedtime board book for the very young child. The illustrations complement the story's warm feeling of seasons and cycles of nature... A clever, subtle introduction to big ideas and a visually pleasing, pretty book.

'It is a bright and colourful book that will make you smile.'

'This is a beautifully illustrated gentle story about a gnome who befriends a giant thus, saving all the gnomes in his forest. [...]This might be a good choice to read to young children if bullying needs to be addressed.' --Youth Services Book Review'
