A Donsy of Gnomes

7 gentle gnome stories

Written and Illustrated by Sieglinde De Francesca



A Donsy of Gnomes is just one of the dearest books ever. The wee folk who live in it will become fast friends with all the young children who get to meet them. And, these charming natural/magical little people come bringing gifts ~ in the most delightful ways possible they teach wee lessons, happily and by example, in generosity, selflessness, resourcefulness, courage and friendship.

This is just a perfect little book for young children. Take your child on a charming and jaunty journey though the worlds of the gnomes. It’s just the thing for sweet dreams at night or a pause in the midst of a busy day. I predict that this will be one of the books that will remain alive in your children’s hearts long after they have grown and have children of their own.

A joy to be shared with children ages 3 and up!

  1. A Donsy of Gnomes has become a treasured storybook in our family of 3 boys, ages 3, 8 and 10. Francesca brings her characters to life and conveys their character traits through her magical stories. My sons will recount the stories over and over and the older ones even discuss the gnomes personalities outside of “storytime”. I have even overheard them whispering about gnomes when they outside playing! This is a wonderful book and it is truly magical for all ages!


  2. We love this book at our house! The book actually stays on a shelf in my bedroom as I have been known to read it before my bedtime. My 6 year old refers to the characters as if they are people we see regularly. I hope there will be more stories published!
