Mr. Gnome is a grumpy little fellow. He’s really quite rude and he is definitely NOT cute. So when Miss Witch asks him to kindly stop fishing in her pond, Mr. Gnome is in danger of finding out exactly what happens to gnomes who say “NO!” From author illustrator Fred Blunt comes this laugh-out-loud cautionary tale, told in a wonderfully conversational style.
