Did you know that a Gnome is seven times stronger than a human? Or that his sense of smell is nineteen times more acute? Or that Gnomes rub noses in both greeting and farewell? Or that Gnome couples always that twin children?

These are other fascinating real-life details- pictured in full colour by the noted Dutch artist Riten Poortvliet illuminate this first documentary portrayal of Gnomes (as distinct from Elves, Goblins, Trolls, Kobolds, Fairies) Poortvliet and his scientist friend Will Hugen have spent over twenty years observing the life and work of the Gnome, and their report at last shatters the age-old myths of song and legend.

A delight to the eye,(Poortvliet is Holland's most popular illustrator) and filled with verbal fun, GNOMES will be a treat for the whole family: as a book to show little ones, as a spoof of the scientific studies for the sophisticate, and as a charming piece of made-i[ reality for every reader.
