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.'
-- Martine Horvath, EYE: Early Years Educator, April 2011.

'Simple language is combined with striking illustrations.'
-- Creative Steps, Spring 2011.

'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.'
-- Morag Charlwood, Armadillo, March 2011

'It is a bright and colourful book that will make you smile.'
-- Tammy Dolling, March 2011

'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
