A holiday story from the award-winning Axel Scheffler that’s just right for toddlers
It’s Christmastime, and Pip and Posy are busy decorating the tree with gingerbread and a beautiful sugar star. But the decorations keep mysteriously disappearing from the tree until there are none left at all. . . . Oh, dear! What will happen when Posy finds Pip lying on the sofa, feeling sick? Is it possible Pip might know what’s happened to all of the ornaments? A charming and funny new Pip and Posy story about honesty, with gentle lessons about friendship.
Very appealing illustrations are in gouache; clean, clear images on lots of white space and large type make this an equally nice fit for reading out loud and beginning readers. Repetition and counting offer satisfying predictability that will keep young readers turning the sturdy pages. —Kirkus Reviews

It’s easy to get caught up in all the good stuff and forget the real purpose of sharing. I’m glad our friends Pip and Posy gave us a timely reminder. —Story Monsters Ink
