A Christmas Tree for Pyn

A Christmas Tree for Pyn Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Christmas is coming. In the craggy rocks on the snowy mountainside, tiny Pyn has her heart set on decorating her very first Christmas tree. But, "No Christmas tree," Papa says. Still, Pyn won't take no for an answer. She knows that a Christmas tree is just the thing their cottage needs to make the season festive and cheery. Pyn is determined to find the perfect Christmas tree - no matter what.

With this story of the love between a father and daughter, Olivier Dunrea captures the true spirit of Christmas.

Review:

"'Oother loved his daughter very much. But he was a bearlike mountain man who did not soften for anyone.' A cheerful girl in spiky pigtails and clogs gradually breaks down her gruff father's defenses with her persistent pursuit of their first 'real' Christmas tree. Dun-rea's (Old Bear and His Cub) talent for capturing a mood of majestic stillness in snowy landscapes shines yet again, as does his skill at creating cozy, rustic details — bushy fur coats and boots, tree-stump beds, a stone hearth — that suggest a mythical time. Pyn and Papa's warming relationship is one to celebrate any time of year. Ages 3 — 8." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
