Pico the Gnome by Martina Muller
  

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

'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'

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
