Part of the magic of the Christmas season stems from the traditions that families and friends take part in every year: hanging up stockings; putting lights in the windows; and, one of the most important of all, picking out and taking home the Christmas tree. With style and warmth, debut author Patricia Toht and Jarvis, the author-illustrator of Alan’s Big, Scary Teeth, evoke all the rituals of decorating the tree — digging out boxes jam-packed with ornaments and tree trimmings, stringing tinsel, and, at long last, turning on those twinkling lights. Joyously drawn and rhythmically written, this celebration of family, friends, and the holiday season is as merry as the tradition it depicts.
This rhyming story of decorating the Christmas tree is super cute, but I think the illustrations are what make this book really great!
A beautifully illustrated book about how to choose and decorate a Christmas tree, with all the feel goods of Christmas time.
Jarvis lives in a very leafy and quiet part of Northern England with his girlfriend and their cat, who rips those ideas into tiny pieces. He has always doodled wherever his career has taken him, from graphic design student to record sleeve designer to animation director.
