‘The little fellow with gnome manners’

We love this book! It’s so much fun to share and is colourful, funny and clever. My four year old is just starting to read and loved repeating ‘no’ and acting as the angry gnome. As you can see from the cover Gnome is very grumpy, preferring his own space and doesn’t tend to help other animals. Not even Mr Hedgehog who has an apple stuck on his spikes!

But then a wicked witch comes along and doesn’t take kindly to Gnome’s bad manners! So she turns him into a statue! My boys were equally shocked and amused at the ending and I love the way the witch doesn’t change him back for a typical happy ending! Children just love a grizzly ending!
