Tilda & Lettie and the Seasonal Elves


Hilariously funny stories about two sisters and their knee-high friends, the garden gnomes!

Christmas is fast approaching when the girls find out that Norbert is no longer the only gnome living in their playhouse: there are two others! Norbert assures the girls that this is a temporary situation… until Christmas. You see, garden gnomes work for Father Christmas over the festive season because the real elves are rushed off their feet! Afterall, a gnome and an elf are just about similar enough to fool anyone.

The girls are worried: Norbert… in charge of their presents! And what will happen to their cat, whose been wrapped up as a present for their neighbour?!
