Christian Tompta is a young gnome on the verge of turning 13, who lives in a ceramic mushroom house with his family on a bookshelf in a human home. Gnome culture dictates that at this birthday, gnomelings must take on a mission or quest of great import to show they are ready for an adult job. Christian’s dream is to become Zach’s guardian (Zach is the human boy who lives in the house), which is a great honor amongst the gnome-folk.
The first law of gnome culture dictates gnomes must never be seen alive by humans, so Christian has been closely sheltered, only going out to get books from the bookshelf. Now, as his birthday nears, he begins to worry and fret about the mission.
This story, “Gnomeling,” is the first in a four book series. Join Christian as he prepares for an adventure like those he has only dreamed about in books! To get the book, click this link: http://tinyurl.com/m3gnlrv
