    1. This is one of my stranger and embarrassing tales.For some bizarre reason, gnomes are a recurring theme in my life Someone gave me this book the month I was getting married I thought the gnome man and woman were cute, ad I bought a gnome man and woman as our wedding cake toppers For our thank you notes after the wedding I bought a postcard of a gnome couple sitting by the side of a lake, fishing The cake topper couple disappeared the night of the wedding and I have never seen them since Not sur [...]

    2. This book fascinated me as a kid my dad was an engineer, so I was drawn to the technical drawings, diagrams, and labels Within the sphere of the fantasy geek, I was most drawn to the complete world authors like Tolkien, authors who didn t just create characters and plots but entire worlds, cultures, and linguistic systems It s telling that my favorite part of Return of the The King is the appendices, and I spent many hours translating phrases into Dwarven Runes.This book fulfills that same cravi [...]

    3. Che ricordi lo sapevo a memoria, conoscevo tutte le abitudini, usi e costumi degli gnomi.Mi ricorda tantissimo la mia infanzia, passavo un sacco di tempo a sfogliarlo e a costruire con la mente viaggi fantastici insieme agli gnomi.Forse le grafiche oggi risulterebbero poco accattivanti, ma secondo me un must have per i bambini

    4. Tom Robbins once wrote, Those who shun the whimsy of things will experience rigor mortis before death So if you think you re too sophisticated for this big, delightful book, check your pulse and the rigidity of your limbs This is the definitive work on all things gnome Playful and whimsical for sure, but these guys take their gnome studies seriously They cover every aspect of gnome life including marriage, home building, food, medicine, friends, enemies, and services gnomes provide for other woo [...]

    5. Okay, here is the review that most of you have been waiting for, haha Is Gnomes cute or scary Mostly cute, with a dash of um, really tossed in that will probaby count as scary for those of you not already predisposed to like gnomes.Now, I admit that I have not read this word for word as it s much longer than I was expecting, but I ve done a fair amount of perusing and my review is based off this.First of all, the entire idea is absolutely fascinating and charming a little exploration of the live [...]

    6. This is an important book in my family My grandparents owned a copy and we kids enjoyed hearing stories about gnomes Nissen and tales of Norway my grandmother heard from her grandmother My brother and sister in law spent time in Iceland, where many people believe gnomes, fairies and elves walk among us They picked up a copy of this book and dressed their newborn son up as a gnome for Halloween one year Another reason we loved this book is because it was the basis for one of our favorite TV shows [...]

    7. Gnomes is a great 70s, realist watercolor illustrated, cryptozoologist fantasy that started the whole popular craze of the tiny, red dunce capped, earth dwelling folk called Gnomes Written as a Field Guide on the habits and habitat of these wee folk who would later take over gardens the world around.At second glance it s sort of surprising this book made the shelves at my elementary school s library Some of the images are down right graphic and gruesome To be honest I m not sure it was given muc [...]

    8. I ve loved this book for a long time, but keep forgetting to name it as one of my favorite books of all time For posterity, I ll do that here this book and The Hitchhiker s Guide to the Galaxy and sequels are my FAVORITE BOOKS OF ALL TIME And Rose just gave me my very own copy For those of you not familiar with this awesome book, it is written as a scientific field guide to gnomes David I read through it a little bit at a time I flip the pages make like I m exposing him to Magical Knowledge, bec [...]

    9. How can I not have added this to my library before I have had my edition since I was a child It was my lovely dad s Its so worn and well loved that I m almost afraid to take it from the shelf in case it falls apart.An absolute joy.

    10. This was one of my absolute favorite books when I was young My wonderful mother bought it for me as a birthday present on year, and it filled me with a sense of wonder I would spend some of my afternoons wandering the forest, looking for potential gnome homes amidst the trees My eyes ready to spot a pointed red cap, peeking out from behind a pile of twigs This book still enchants me A fabulous gift for children of any age.

    11. My favorite line so far aside from the fun illustrations although the female gnome has a substantial bosom, decreased gravity at her height allows her to go through life unencumbered by a brassiere.

    12. It has become apparent that I have well and truly lost my sense of magic When I was a teenager I was entranced by Gnomes My school library stocked it as a reference item, and many a lunchtime was spent poring over it Eventually I left school and Gnomes behind, but for many years wished I could find another copy and revisit the world of Gnomes Imagine my excitement then when I discovered a second hand copy at a local bookstore I eagerly handed over my 3, rushed it home, and discovered the magic h [...]

    13. I loved reading this book as a kid it was straight up hard lined magic and the little naked gnome ass really struck a chord with my fantasy addled brain Yes Loved it This is the definitive 1 bestselling guide and handbook to everything and all things gnome Fantasy filled and whimsical always, being a gnome is serious stuff however All facts are covered in every aspect of gnome life including courting, marriage and child raising, growing food, medicine, good friends, bad enemies, and relations wi [...]

    14. I don t think I truly ever read this book from start to finish but I probably looked through it at different times and in different places about fifty times It s a nostalgic masterpiece from my childhood I remember my German cousins had it and I didn t know how to get my hands on it but I looked through theirs a bunch of times Eventually I found it years later in a book store here in the U.S and was able to give a much better look through.I recently saw it at my local library and snagged a copy [...]

    15. My brother had this book when I was little I absolutely loved the pictures and the research with diagrams about the gnome and the life of the gnome However, it was the trolls that caused the biggest thrill They were horrible, nasty creatures, and the descriptions of their terrible and cruel ways were bad enough, but the artwork of those stinking, bug infested creatures My friend and I would scare ourselves to hysterics when we were about 10 or so, well into the nights when she was sleeping over, [...]

    16. This coffee table sized book was a present my mom gave my dad back when I was very tiny It rather quickly became in all but name my book Dad didn t get very into it, but I was fascinated by the concept of this whole little world of sentient beings we just overlook in our hurly burly modern world.I haven t looked between the covers in years God knows what I d think now.

    17. Finally got my hands on this after years of wanting it It is a first edition in English printing, too, and I got it for a whopping 3 It is gorgeous, and well worth the wait The noise I made when I found it was incredible , and I REGRET NOTHING.I sat down with it and literally read it from cover to cover It is delicious.447635325 stars, if I could I love gnomes, okay

    18. I was given this book when I was a child It was one of those childhood books that I constantly read and re read The stories and the illustrations have to been deeply embedded into my brain The book is a lavish book Huygen did such a good job with the details.

    19. I don t know what it isbut I love this book It just does such a good job of making it seem like a legitimate report on the habits of real gnomes I fully intend to buy my children a copy one day I didn t even read it until I was a teenager and still loved it.

    20. I remember picking this up and thumbing through it in 1982 This time I actually sat down and read the entire thing It was awesome and the final chapter was a testament to our society Amazing that it was written in 1976 Highly recommend.

    21. very, very cute book about Gnomes Tongue in cheek I was very fascinated with it when I was a child, and I still remember it to this day.

    22. Gotta love the gnomes Had this book when I was a child, and really really hoped I would run into a gnome somewhere in the woods one day Loved it.

    23. I love this book The illustrations are absolutely fantastic and whimsical And the stories and tales of the gnomes is fun for both kids and adults This book has been enjoyed by myself, my Gramma, and every generation in between Highly recommended to add to your collection Nice coffee table book, too.

    24. By read I mean paged through to remember this book from my childhood without an in depth re reading but you get the point.I don t remember some of the gender politics being so antiquated but past that it s almost exactly what I had in my mind cute, whimsical fluff with some nice watercolors accompanying it.

    25. Oh, I remember this It was a big hit among the DD and fantasy crowd It was such fun, and the detailed drawings were terrific.

    26. Little people trolls and gnomes especially loom large in my childhood memories The crazy haired troll dolls made a comeback in the late 70s, and the little Smoky Mountain towns my parents liked to visit were haunted by Norwegian troll statues and Arensbak trolls made from logs, nuts, and pine cones There were also the Smurfs, who made their entrance into my life on a family vacation to Florida, as little blue vinyl figurines with stubby blue tails living in plastic mushrooms for sale at the Stuc [...]

    27. I can t believe I had gone through so many years, working in libraries, without discovering this gem until this past week Since gnomes make up a big part of this year s summer reading theme, I have a gnome display on the bulletin board in the children s area One of my coworkers and I started talking about the nature of gnomes, and she showed me this deluxe edition of Gnomes by Wil Huygen.Admittedly, I haven t read many books about gnomes, but I would bet that this book is the ultimate and defini [...]

    28. I thought this book was my own secret discovery for a long time Left outside of a neighbor s front door with a bunch of nondescript paperbacks, as a child I took this book up to my room and marveled at every beautiful hand written and illustrated page I was obsessed with fairy tales in my childhood the colored Fairy books as well as very old classics like The Brownies book show 31 and so this book was a very exciting discovery If you enjoy thinking about the lifestyle and history of mythical cre [...]
