Pip and Posy: The Christmas Tree

Publisher: Nosy Crow

Pip and Posy are putting up their Christmas tree – when it’s in the pot, they bake biscuits to hang on it. Mysteriously, when Posy goes to get some candy canes to hang on the tree, she returns to find that one of the biscuits has disappeared. Next, it’s the turn of the candy canes and then the chocolate bells. What can have happened? And why does Pip suddenly feel sick?

This lovely picture book for toddlers and preschoolers features Scheffler’s well-known characters, and, as usual, has a gentle moral to the story: greedy Pip gets given a lovely toothbrush in the end, which is just what he needs. The values of friendship and kindness are also explored, with kind Posy encouraging Pip when he suggests a non-edible solution for the tree decorations.

A delightful story for little ones.
