The Gnomes' Winter Journey | Hardcover
An enchanting winter tale with vintage illustrations reminiscent of Elsa Beskow and Sibylle von Olfers.
Three forest gnomes journey to visit their mountain cousins, helped by dancing snow fairies and a sledge pulled by friendly squirrels. When they finally arrive there's much fun to be had – snowball fights, tobogganing and a delicious feast with the elegant Winter Queen.
First published in 1924, this is a gorgeous new edition of a classic winter story from a renowned Swiss artist.
Ernst Kreidolf (1863-1956) was a Swiss illustrator, best known for creating picture books featuring fairies and other little folk, which have continued to delight children for decades.
