Leven en werken van de Kabouter

For readers of all ages Children will adore the gnome family's underground home and the constant interaction with animals; adults will appreciate the tongue in cheek scientific data Gnomebody is immune to the gnomes' tremendous appeal and a whole new generation is waiting to love them for the first tim This is an important book in my family My grandparents owned a copy and we kids enjoyed hearing stories about gnomes Nissen and tales of Norway my grandmother heard from her grandmother My brother and sister in law spent time in Iceland where many people believe gnomes fairies and elves walk among us They picked up a copy of this book and dressed their newborn son up as a gnome for Halloween one year Another reason we loved this book is because it was the basis for one of our favorite TV shows David the Gnome on Nickelodeon The stories of gnomes and the show have been passed on to the next generation and I hope the book will get passed down as well

REVIEW Leven en werken van de Kabouter

Ways have twin children Or that a gnome is seven times as strong as a human Do you want to hear some gossip from the gnome who knew Rembrandt Dutch artist Rien Poortvliet's charming illustrations and physician Wil Huygen's detailed observations of the gnomes' habits anatomy and lifestyle are a delight Okay here is the review that most of you have been waiting for haha Is Gnomes cute or scaryMostly cute with a dash of um really tossed in that will probaby count as scary for those of you not already predisposed to like gnomesNow I admit that I have not read this word for word as it s much longer than I was expecting but I ve done a fair amount of perusing and my review is based off thisFirst of all the entire idea is absolutely fascinating and charming a little exploration of the lives of gnomes presented as if it is a factual account like a field study We learn about their body structures likes and dislikes personalities courting and childrearing habits hobbies and daily activites home life etc For example gnomes have mice as pets and live in burrows but very cute and homey houses under trees they have their own bee hives for honey they like to provide first aide to animals and female gnomes grow beards in old age The pictures are mostly extremely adorable I love the rosy cheeked gnomes and all the pretty woodland settings and the wildlife and seeing their little home and the table spread for breakfast Chandra I can see where you would have been fascinated as a child I think I would have tooJust a small caution a few images might be a bit unsettling to some children like the picture of a gnome head first in a deer s mouth if you read the description you find he is getting out mouth worms or some such parasite which is gross anyway but it looks like the deer is eating him Also while a few sketches of topless very well endowed female gnomes ie nursing gnome babies night simply fascinate or amuse children I know conservative parents would not approveThe end section contains several fables about gnomesAll in all a delightful collection if you like gnomes but I don t think it will win any of you over if you aren t alerady fans
