Synopsis

Pico the Gnome by Martina Muller

One day, Pico the gnome goes for an evening stroll to collect firewood and ingredients for a stew, and falls asleep in the forest. He dreams of a fairy who tells him he will soon have to be brave. Sure enough, as dawn breaks, a giant thunders through the land, frightening all the animals and birds -- but Pico uses quick thinking and kind words to bring about a happy ending. Generations of children have enjoyed Martina Muller's classic picture book, illustrated in a handcrafted artistic style full of life and colour, and the tale -- which captures the value of bridging differences -- remains as relevant today. This beautiful gift edition is perfect for young hands.

Reviews

'This is a beautifully illustrated gentle story about a gnome who befriends a giant thus, saving all the gnomes in his forest. Pico takes the gentle approach when confronted by the menacing giant and the world is saved. A great story to read to little ones.'

--Youth Services Book Review 'The story itself is simple, well told and engaging. It clearly tells young readers that conflict often arises from misunderstandings, from a lack of empathy for others

.

'Beautiful full-page color illustrations by the author accompany a tale of a gnome who co-exists peacefully in his forest home until his blissful sleep is interrupted. Kids will enjoy the gentle story, lovely drawings, and unexpected results of Pico's encounter.'
