Breaking News: Secrets of the Garden Gnome Finally Revealed!

The Anthem of the Garden Gnome 

There once was a little garden gnome,
the center of the veggie patch was his home.
He wished on every star that he could 
to be far more than just gnome-shaped wood.

Than one night beneath a silver full moon
The garden gnome whistled a strange little tune.
Of magic and whimsy the story is told,
He was carved of a tree ten million years old! 

A twinkle appeared in the little gnome's eye. 
Then wrinkled  his nose so happy he cried!
So delight was he that his wish had been granted,
& vowed to protect every vegetable planted.

Because of the gnome, your garden does grow. He's good luck for the clover, veggie & rose!

Meet Skye the Troll who simply wasn't trolly enough. "Skye wished and wished for her back to hunch, to slobber and droll when she ate her lunch, for crooked teeth to fill her frown, then maybe they would grant her a troll-queen crown!" Skye finds being different isn't easy and goes on an adventure to find her place.

On her adventure, which was almost the same as being lost, she meets a wizard, gnomes and befriends a group of magical fairies. These unique and magical new friends praise Skye for her beautiful voice and invite her to join their fairy choir. Skye returns home to Trollshire with a new found confidence, finally happy to be her not-so-trolly self. Learn more about Skye and her other friends on our website: www.skyethetroll.com
