The story begins with a delightful poem that describes how Gnomes came about, why they’re here, and what their beliefs are. The poem seamlessly transitions to the introduction of Christian and his family. Between the detailed descriptions and the wonderful, fun illustrations, I felt like I was there with them, experiencing life from their point of view. . The author also captured what it must feel like to walk through a human’s yard when you’re smaller than a blade of grass, and how frightening and challenging the world must feel to someone so small.
It was a joy for me to read as an adult, so I imagine the story will be equally, if not more, captivating to young readers. I’ll be passing this on to my grandchildren to read, and ordering the companion activity book. I can’t wait for the next book to come out.
My son enjoyed reading this unique story. Ms. Paul paints a picture of a fantastical world hidden within the average family home. Charming characters & animals, budding magical abilities, learning responsibility... it's all in there.
