About The Book

For fans of Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! and No, David! comes a tale about a very small gnome who has some very big ideas about the school garden.

Gnome cannot wait to help his friends harvest the school garden! But his eagerness and excitement get him into trouble, leaving them all saying, “No, no, Gnome!”

The author/illustrator of Are We There, Yeti? delivers a sweet new picture book starring a loveable little hero who has a whole lot of energy...and heart.

Raves and Reviews

"Anstee’s illustrations are full of color, energy, and life. Young children will appreciate the humor in this story and will chime in on the “No, no, Gnome!” refrain. A charming book for storytime..."

– School Library Journal

“Anstee’s bright, retro illustrations effectively convey what’s both funny and wrong when Gnome goes wild. And most children will know a Gnome—or know that they’re capable of Gnome-like behavior from time to time.”

– Publishers Weekly

"A lighthearted glimpse into a hyperactive, impulsive tot's world and a possible learning tool to encourage social-emotional growth."

– Kirkus Reviews
