Gnome is so excited to help his friend in the school garden. The only problem is, Gnome isn't very helpful. It's hard to stay mad at him though, especially when Gnome tries to do everything he can to make it right.
I like a good planting book, but the idea that a gnome with a full beard going to school was a bit confusing. Then again, there are a few bunnies in his class. So maybe gnomes in this fantasy world are born with full-grown beards. That said, Gnome is definitely not given enough direction, which allows him to run amock, something that some little ones can probably relate to. It is a shame that Gnome isn't able to learn how to behave him before he tears everything up and lucky for him that it is fixable. I liked Gnome, but I am a bit lukewarm with this book.
