INSPOKE AWARD: Review: "There are things that sometimes only the wee ones can see and I suspect often this is the case with gnomes and fairy folk. Gnomes, as author Rhonda Paglia tells us, are afraid of Big People. So, one day, when three little gnomes suddenly come upon an existential problem (apparently they do not have names) and needed help, it is not Grammy and Papa (the owners of the garden where they lived) that they approach but a little boy named Orion who sometimes visited and played there. And naming gnomes apparently is something that an imaginative, kind-hearted little boy can do very well! The tale is delightful, an absolute charm, and it provides a glimpse not only into that wider, magical world that children can see (and often we cannot) but of the important work and magic that they do as they play. The illustrations in the book of the gnomes, garden friends and Orion are darling and elicit the pure wonder of Grammy and Papa's garden and the secret world that lies beyond the bend of a leaf. Kudos to the author and illustrator for their ability to see what Orion sees and for being able to share that with us so beautifully. It's a book that is a pure pleasure to read." ~ Inkspokes
