Pip the Gnome


Pip the gnome sits with his friends mouse, rabbit and squirrel to watch the sunset.

One by one, Pip's friends go to sleep: the mouse in her bed under a tree root, the rabbit in her burrow underground, the squirrel in his cosy hole high in a tree.

Pip is sleepy too. "Sleep well, Pip."

Perfect for bedtime, the soft, colourful illustrations and simple, rhythmic words of this beautiful board book prepare very young children for a peaceful night's sleep.


'This lovely little board book is perfect for helping young children to settle into a bedtime, or nap time, routine... As each animal goes to bed, the background in the pictures moves through the colours of the sunset, evening and night time, which, coupled with the text and its use of such sleepy words as cosy, nestle, curls up, yawns, asleep, and more, all help to calm children and help them relax into sleep.'
-- Early Years Educator Magazine

Praise for Pip the Gnome and the Christmas Tree:

'Kwant's art is the star of this simple story. Rendered in soft coloured 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 Book Reviews (US)

'Colourful illustrations and simple words in this utterly charming story written and illustrated by Admar Kwant introduce babies and toddlers to the joy of preparing for Christmas. Soft, wintery colors wonderfully illuminate the day from morning to dusk, ending with the candle-lit tree.'
-- Midwest Book Review (US)
