What did you like about the book? Little gnome named Pip, decorates a Christmas tree with the help of some forest animals. The evergreen is decorated with an apple from Pip, woolen thread from a robin, golden straw from a rabbit, and a rosehip from a mouse. The final touch is a candle that Pip places on top. 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.
