Description

This is a lovely collection of stories by master storyteller Jakob Streit, drawn from the northern lands of Europe and featuring brave, good and helpful gnomes, elves, trolls and other little folk. In particular, we follow the adventures of Liputto, a curious gnome who helps mountain flowers to grow.

Children in Year 1 of Steiner-Waldorf schools will especially delight in these tales, but they will be loved by older children too.
