Anyone familiar with the bestselling Gnomes book (over one million sold) illustrated by one of Holland's most celebrated artists, will like this one. When a mysterious greenwood box is discovered in the rafters of an old barn in northern Finland, it is found to contain tiny bundles of paper, each revealing remarkable descriptions of the Christmas rituals of the gnomes. In every gnome home around the world, Christmas lasts an entire month, and it signals the coming of a new year, which the gnomes ring in with a blessing: "May this year be full of proud deeds and silly games, beautiful songs and hearty feasts, clever jokes, loving friends, and enough surprises to keep us on our toes."
A Gnome's Christmas is the latest study on the lives and cultural habits of the Dutch... I mean, the gnomes. Detailing their love of the Christmas season, this delightful book features songs, stories, games, and recipes for holiday treats, as well as captivating and charming illustrations. Poortvliet also authored and illustrated He Was One of Us about the life of Jesus; he passed away in 1995.
