Pick a pine tree from the lot - slim and tall, or short and squat! Long straight limbs or branches bent... Mmm! Just smell that piney scent!

From the winner of the V&A Best Illustrated Book 2017

From Alan's Big, Scary Teeth creator, Jarvis, and author Patricia Toht, comes a 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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The short, rhyming text has a bouncy, appealing tone, with four brief lines of text per page. Delightful mixed-media illustrations use a flattened perspective, simple shapes, and glowing, light-filled backgrounds for a fresh take on the tree-decorating tradition. The illustrations are all in double-page-spread format with compositions that will work well for reading to a group or with just one child in a lap. Pick this delightful story for a Christmas storytime, for library collections, or for family reading around the Christmas tree." * Kirkus *
"Stunning illustrations complement a beautiful narrative celebrating the rituals of decorating the tree; a classic to revisit every Christmas." * Baby Hampshire *
"The book is just perfect for this time of year [...]I would defiantly recommend this book as it made me feel the joy that comes with the thought of Christmas" * Thenextbestthingtomummy.com *
"[...] gorgeous picture book. Writer Patricia Toht and award-winning illustrator Jarvis capture the spirit of the season [...] The slow-paced rhyme and retro look of the artwork makes this feel as familiar and comforting as a pair of old socks. A future family classic that you'll want to reread every year." * Gurgle *
"Festive cheer fuels this bouncy rhyming text as it celebrates the excitement of getting and decorating the tree for Christmas. From choosing the right pine tree, decorating it with lights and baubles in an atmosphere of friendship and sharing and finally transforming it a Christmas tree for all to enjoy, all the magic of Christmas is gathered in these words and pictures." * Julia Eccleshare Pick of the Month, November Picture Book of the Month, LoveReading *
