During the daytime, a child's imagination seems to bring the garden gnome to life, but at night, a different magic takes over as he protects the gardens, fends off predators, rescues lost toys, and keeps order.

PreS-Gr 1-A lush, bountiful garden is the setting for this almost wordless fantasy about the adventures of an ornamental statuette. With her dolls and stuffed animals in tow, a girl spies the gnome and adds him to her brood, but doesn't notice when a small bear tumbles from her red wagon. After an enjoyable day, the child replaces the lawn statue and takes her playthings home. At dusk, when the stars appear in the night sky, the gnome comes to life, tending the garden and caring for the animals that venture out after dark. Upon discovering the lost bear, he delivers him, at great risk, to the child's bedroom windowsill. Vivid watercolor illustrations, predominantly of intense greens, depict plush, velvety animals reminiscent of Jane Hissey's creatures, and lavish nature close-ups with every veined leaf and blade of grass clearly delineated. The pastoral scenes play host to a variety of wildlife, including birds, slugs, mice, rabbits, and an inquisitive caterpillar that appears in the majority of paintings. A magical tale of an enchanted garden.-Maryann H. Owen, Racine Public Library, WI
