Gnit-Wit Gnipper is back and she's still facing some challenges if she wants to get a real hat instead of a frying pan for her head...

This author has a great imagination and writes a silly, busy story that should grab young ones' attention and keep them reading to the end. Everything Gnit-Wit does seems to evolve into big trouble. You find yourself waiting to see just how things are going to turn out this time.

All she wants is a cookie. How could trying to reach where the cookies are stored cause a problem? Well, it can if you try to create a growth potion you can use to reach up there and manage to test a drop on your fire ant queen. The potion DOES work and now you have a monster aunt who happens to be pregnant!

T J Lanz's world of gnomes is fun to visit. Everyone seems to be a bit crazy. Gnit-Wit's Granny can fly (her plane is out of this world), and her friend, Sam, is part human and part squirrel. With characters like these and a BIG ant that is going to hatch thousands of babies shortly, the action picks up and races through the short story.

Any child who likes silliness, has a good imagination or would just like to be surprised by how a story will enjoy this one. It's a fast read that could easily work into a fantastic conversation about the things your own child can imagine. Why not let them write their own story and read it to you? I'm sure this author would be pleased to know that his/her work has created another fantasy story.

After reading Lantz's Gnit-Wit Gnipper and the Perilous Plague, I was excited to see he already had a follow-up available on Kindle. While Gnipper remains the star of the show, what I liked best about this new story was the supporting cast the author introduces. Each character has a unique personality, and I ended up being a fan of them all.

The story itself is well crafted, and readers of all ages should enjoy finding out how Gnipper gets herself out of another crazy dilemma (which she created in the first place). There's no drop off in quality from the first story, so if you read that and liked it -- or if you're a fan of witty fantasy similar to that of Terry Pratchett or Neil Gaiman -- you should enjoy this.

This is a story about a gnome called Gnipper who longs for a `real' hat to gain kudos in the community and shake off the added name of Gnit Wit. The community is very science orientated and to gain her hat, and lose her added name, she, like all the others, must invent something which will enhance the lives of all gnomes. Gnipper's invention (still in its experimental stages) is to be a growth potion, largely so she can reach the cookie jar, but also because she feels it will be useful to others of the same stature. But, needless to say, the experiment backfires when she tests it on her pet ant, which does indeed grow - out of all proportion, in fact - and becomes very hostile. And if that is not enough, she is expecting lots of little ants in the very near future, hence an impending disaster is born. But can Gnipper undo what she has done!
This is a fun and imaginative read and I can see it keeping children engaged with its quirky characters, amusing dialogue and original plot. I also thought it was well-crafted and reasonably exiting. Younger children may need a bit of help with some of the vocabulary though, but that is not a bad thing as long as there is a parent or older sibling there to help out. I would see this book appealing to ages 6 and upwards.

Creative and cute follow up to The Perilous Plague, from TJ Lantz, continuing Gnipper's story. Gnipper's tale is an adorable, quick read that, as many other reviews have already mentioned, is perfect for all ages to enjoy. Mr. Lantz's imaginative short story leaves you wanting to read more about Gnipper the Gnome and the crazy situations she gets herself into. Great up and coming author with a lovable character!

This is the second Rosehaven story (behind "Gnit-Wit Gnipper and the Perilous Plague") and I think it's better than the first one. It's much funnier and we get to meet new members of Gnipper's world. Gnipper does many crazy things that kids will enjoy and might relate to. There are a lot of difficult words that many children might not understand if reading on their own but this could be a wonderful tool for increasing a child's vocabulary. Like the first Rosehaven book, this is also an ideal bedtime or classroom story that kids AND adults can enjoy.

Gnit-wit Gnipper and the Ferocious Fire Ants is an imaginative, fun story for everyone. The main character, Gnipper, is a loveable gnome who gets herself into trouble/adventure, with the help of her woodland friends and gnomish family. The story is very creative, and I can't wait to read more in the next book about how she will finally earn her gnome-hat!

I bought a copy of this story book called "Garden Gnomes" for my 6 year of niece a few weeks ago. She absolutely loved the story and has read it a few times already. Anyway, while browsing Amazon yesterday, I stumbled upon this book by T.J. Lantz and looking at the word Gnome, I picked it up immediately and surprised my niece.

The story of Gnipper is extremely adorable and exciting. I was reading the story along with her and in spite of being a grown-up, I really enjoyed reading it. The story is fun and the characters are adorable. The thing I loved the most about this story book is how the author has included a whole lot of illustrations in the story. This encourages young kids to read and at the same time it ensures that they don't get bored. On the whole, the story is creative, lively and funny and I think it would be loved by most kids.
