Description

This is a delightful story from master storyteller Jakob Streit, with insights of wisdom, humour and goodness.

Puck the gnome has one foot facing forward, and one facing backward -- so he never knows if he's coming or going! His story brings to life the world of gnomes for children and addresses issues of friendship, honesty and loyalty.
