Pip the Gnome


Pip the gnome plays happily with his woodland friends, the mouse, robin, wren and spider. Follow them through spring, summer, into autumn and then winter.

The colourful illustrations and simple words introduce very young children to the seasons, with bright green leaves in spring, warm sunshine in summer, blustery wind in autumn and snowfall in winter.

Perfect for bedtime, the story ends as we look up at the stars and say good night to Pip.


'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
