Do you know that a Gnome is seven times as strong as a human? Or that Gnome couples always have twin children? These and other fascinating details illuminate this documentary portrayal of Gnomes. Dutch artist Rien Poortvliet’s illustrations make this book a treat for the entire family. We realize, of course, that these Gnomes are not strictly Scandinavian, but they are closely related to Norwegian nisse and Swedish tomte. Hardcover.
