The Grumpy Gnome’s Garden


This is a magical story set in an overgrown garden the size of a field where one very lonely, sometimes grumpy gnome wishes things were different. Although he wants his garden to be a beautiful place where he can sit, he works with wood all day and does not know how to change the wild growth into something wonderful and inviting.

One day, a green-fingered Fairy Princess comes to stay in the Gnome’s cottage, and with a little hard work, a little magic and a little assistance from Mark-o’-the-Wisp who lives next door transforms his wilderness into a gorgeous garden. Along the way, the Fairy Princess helps the Gnome make friends with his neighbours and other locals, and even encourages a furry feline housemate!

Touching on themes such as the importance of friendship and the wonder of nature against the backdrop of the seasons, The Grumpy Gnome’s Garden will be loved by children aged 4 upwards. For anyone who loves nature, this modern fairytale is an enchanting read for children and adults to share.
