Gnome from Nome by Stephen Cosgrove, Robin James


Gnome from Nome by Stephen Cosgrove, Robin James

In the bitter cold of the North Pole lived a lonely little gnome called Alappuu. Worse than being lonely was that he was cold from the inside out. He could warm his fingers, warm his toes, but never could he get his frozen heart to glow. In desperation he packed everything he owned and traveled south to the little town of Nome, Alaska, in search of the answer to his frozen dilemma. Joined by a delightful otter, the two soon discover the heart-warming secret now to be shared by all. The story, wrapped in gentle historic fact, will warm the hearts of young and old alike.
