This timeless tale introduces readers to Dodder, Baldmoney, Cloudberry, and Sneezewort ... the last four gnomes in Britain. The brothers live a happy and peaceful life until the day that Cloudberry decides to go and explore. When he doesn't return the remaining three brothers build a boat and set off on an adventure of their own to find him.
The Little Grey Men by B.B
The last four gnomes in Britain live on the banks of the bubbling Folly brook. They are perfectly happy with their quiet life, except, that is, for one ...Cloudberry. Restless and longing for adventure, Cloudberry sets off to follow his dream. But when he doesn't return, the remaining gnomes must set off on their own adventure to find him. This is the story of the brothers' epic journey in search of Cloudberry and is set against the background of the English countryside, beginning in spring, continuing through summer, and concluding in autumn, when the first frosts start to arrive. This enchanting tale was the winner of the prestigious Carnegie Medal and features the author's own beautiful illustrations throughout.
