Back of book says: Gnomes are rare these days - which is why so few people evr see them. But elizabeth and her Uncle find two forlorn little people, the last of a tribe of California Redwodd gnomes. Then they hear Glogo's sad story, they get in Uncle Rodney's schiny car to search for another tribe of gnomes and a wife for young Bobo. But curiosity seekers cause one problem after another until something really terrible happens...Bobo and Glogo are gnome-gnaped!

I Say: First published in 1936 (this edition is 1966) this story is different from the movie - although many of the incidents and the web of the plot are similar. It is a fine travelogue of 1930s California.
