Tilda & Lettie and the Pocket-Gump

Tiltu ja Lettu: Taskukaihon tapaus

Deliciously humourous stories about two sisters and their knee-high friends, the garden gnomes and elves.

Mum has entered their garden into The Most Beautiful Garden Competition and wants everything to look perfect, including the sisters’ playhouse. Entering the playhouse to tidy up, Tiltu and Lettu stop on their tracks: such is the mess they see! They soon realise that there is something wrong with their friend Gnome. He is certainly not his usual grumpy self but positively glum to say the least! Gnome has been struck with a distressing elf-ailment called The Gump that makes gnomes and elves sick of elfing and gnoming. The cause of this ailment is the horrid Pocket-Gump that has made a nest in Gnome’s pocket! To fix both their friend and the playhouse, the girls must find a way to get rid of the uninvited pest in the pocket!
