A brand new midi-edition of Jarvis and Patricia Toht’s beautiful, irresistible Christmas gift book that all begins with … picking a pine tree! Brimming over with the excitement of being with family at the festive season, a gorgeously rhythmical, read-aloud narrative accompanied by warm, joyful art celebrates all the familiar rituals of decorating the tree – from digging out jam-packed boxes of trimmings, stringing tinsel to, at last, turning on those twinkly fairy lights.
- In a delightful midi size, and with a Christmas Tree pop at the end, this is the perfect festive stocking filler.
- Jarvis’ Alan’s Big, Scary Teeth was the winner of the V&A Best Illustrated Book, chosen for Booktrust’s Bookstart Treasure Pack (gifted to 750,000 pre-schoolers) and has been translated into 16 languages worldwide.
- Look out for Pick a Pumpkin, too, to be published Halloween 2019!
