5 out of 5 (1 rating)


Dodder, Baldmoney, Cloudberry, and Sneezewort are the last four gnomes in Britain and were first introduced to us in the Carnegie Medal-winning book, The Little Grey Men. In this charming book their story continues and we find them tucked up in their cosy home, next to the Folly, for winter. But when they're awakened from their sleep with the terrible news that the Folly is drying up, they must pack up their belongings and head off in their boat, the Jeanie Deans, to find a new home where they can be safe once again. Along the way they face many dangers and their journey is sometimes perilous and packed with adventure.
