The Grumpy Gnome Goes on Holiday


Return to the characters your child fell in love with the first time as we join the Grumpy Gnome on an adventure! This time, the Grumpy Gnome goes on holiday to France, along with The Fairy Princess, Captain Robert, First Mate Ron, and Marko-the-Wisp. He drives them there in his pride and joy, a Morris Traveller called Miss Morag Minor. But when the travellers arrive in France, they are shocked to discover a stowaway on board! 

On their way around the country, they enjoy a whole series of adventures, also joining up with friends, Nosferatu & Madame Craccodile. They visit a park with a zoo, where the Fairy Princess sees a red squirrel. Marko-the-Wisp encounters a very friendly giraffe and has an accident falling into a lily pond! And First Mate Ron and Captain Robert go head to head with a stone skimming competition and everyone goes on a very strange carousel ride with wild, golden horses! 

But there's much more to discover as they travel! Touching on themes such as the importance of friendship and the wonder of nature, The Grumpy Gnome Goes on Holiday will be loved by children aged 4 upwards.

My new book, 'The Grumpy Gnome Goes on Holiday' will be launched on 28th May 2021, available to order in all good (and bad) bookshops.

Della Hales

Della Hales comes from Hertfordshire and The Grumpy Gnome's Garden is her first book.

Della has a passion for gardening and spends a lot of time on her allotment growing fruit, vegetables, herbs and pretty flowers. There are also two ponds, one made from a washing up bowl, and one from an old, broken wheelbarrow.

Della also loves crafting. When she's not at her allotment, her time is spent at her studio, located on a lovely park in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire.

Coming along for the ride with all Della's various hobbies, are her two young granddaughters, Rosalie and Poppy. They love a crafting session, or digging in the allotment and a sleepover at 'GranDella's' house!
