'Young children ages 1 to 3 will discover beautiful, natural things such as: a red apple, soft woollen thread, golden straw and a bright, shiny rosehip.

Soft, wintery colors wonderfully illuminate the day from morning to dusk, ending with the candle-lit tree. Perfect for bedtime during Advent, the story ends as we say 'Happy Christmas Pip'. "Pip the Gnome and the Christmas Tree" is an ideal and unreservedly recommended addition to family, preschool, and community library Board Book collections.'
--Midwest Book Review

'Kwant's art is the star of this simple story. Rendered in what looks to be soft colored pencil or oil pastels, the scenes beautifully evoke the playful joy of decorating a tree. Pip is especially endearing, with his apple-doll face, Santa-red hat, and apple-green suit.'
--Kirkus

'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
