Paul and The Porch Gnome

It's a normal hot summer day in your typical small town.  All the children are playing outside with their toys and friends, all except five year old Paul who feels all alone.

Paul's Uncle Johnny decides to introduce Paul to a little gnome that happens to live under the front porch. Paul attempts to become friends with this gnome by leaving him special treats.

Paul's summer turns into an exciting, adventurous, and magical journey of friendship and memories that he will take with him throughout life.

Children's Book

First time published author here.  I wrote a little children's book about a boy and a secret gnome that lives under the porch.  I actually wrote this book years ago.  It is shortly based on true events.  I am the youngest of three boys.  Much younger than my two older brothers, in fact 9-12 years younger.  My uncle and aunt lived next door to us.  I used to walk over to my uncles and help him out in the yard.  As he knew I had no one to play with one summer he decided to let me in on a little secret about a gnome that lived under his front porch. I would leave the gnome every evening little treats and in turn would find a treat left specifically for me.  I never forgot how much that summer made me feel and thought it a great idea to carry on that tradition.  I only wish I still had all the items I had collected.  I have read the book to members of my family under the age of ten, and have found that they love the imagination and story line.  Hope everyone enjoys it. 
The book is available on online retail stores and at the publishers website.  Follow the link below if you would like to purchase!!!!! Thanks

P.S. future stories are being worked on.  Currently working on a cookbook.  Will post as they come.
