A Gnome Story: Adventures with Murphy McWoo

A Gnome Story is Michelle’s first children’s book. While she has never seen a garden gnome come to life nor does she know any fairies; that hasn’t stopped her from imagining a world where sneaky gnomes and beautiful fairies might exist. She hopes this book inspires you to create characters and tales of your own!

A Gnome Story was illustrated by Hanna Piepel. You can find information on her creative projects here.

Within Central Iowa, you can find paperback copies of A Gnome Story at the following shops:
