The Pocket Gnome

Rated 5.00/5 based on 3 reviews
Twelve-year-old David Mishram did not believe in magic. If he had, he would not have made the trap that caught a black-hearted pocket-sized gnome called Lod Fomori, or encountered a mysterious two-natured woman, or fought the vicious Fomori tribe to save the last seed of Power. If he had believed in myth and magic, he would NEVER have set that trap and our world would be a very different place. More

About Lynette Aspey

Lynette Aspey writes science fiction and fantasy for anybody who likes reading, or being read to.

Lyn was born in Sydney, Australia. She grew up amidst beaches, horses, sunshine and books. Lots, and lots of books.

At 21 she went travelling and is still lying to her mother about when she's coming home. She's lived in the UK, Europe, Scandinavia, Canada, the Caribbean and various inter-dimensional spaces between.

Lyn and her husband Steve, live onboard their 43ft Steel Ketch, "Haven" with their young daughter.

They have no idea where they'll be or what they'll be doing from day to day, and that's just how they like it.

I feel as though I am on the journey with David. The discriptions make it appear real. I am tempted to creep down to the bottom of my garden and check for gnomes! A clever idea twisted into an intriging story for more mature readers.

Review by: Anne Dunlop on Sep. 23, 2011 :
Great book, lots of fun. I love Lynn's descriptions, like; "as if the baker had dropped a button of pink sugar and a dash of attitude into the bread mixture"? The hidden undercurrent of a very unhappy wee boy, who suddenly finds that life isn't as bad as he thought evolves beautifully. Recommended for young readers and readers who still believe they're young!
