Griswald is a little gnome who lives in the rain gutter. The one day, a storm washes him down the drainpipe into an old rain barrel. At first, Griswald is unsure about his new home, but soon he meets all the animals, birds and plants that live in the garden and has wonderful times with his new friends.
Through the seasons, Griswald explores a whole new world in the garden, gets into sticky situations, helps his new companions and even learns to dance!
Perfect for bedtime, each easy-to-read chapter tells a different story and is filled with beautiful illustrations of lively gnomes and sprites, colourful plants and flowers, and characterful animals and birds.
This delightful chapter storybook from Daniela Drescher, the much-loved creator of In the Land of Fairies and the Little Fairy series, will enchant and entertain children everywhere.
‘Daniela Drescher’s watercolour illustrations have such wonderful detail that you can feel transported to the seasons of the garden while you enjoy the problems, fun and games of Griswald’s life.’
