Between brushing his teeth, taking a shower, and being a kid, Ryan can't be bothered with another chore.

That is until his dad warns him about the Night Gnomes, who snatch up misplaced items and may claim them as their own.

At first, Ryan doesn't listen, but when his discarded shoes go missing, he has no choice but to use his secret detective skills and so he braves the night in search of the mysterious gnomes. What he finds, though, is even more than he bargained for.

About the Author    Winter Hat Clip Art

There is nothing in the world that Itzik loves more than spending time with his family. Whether they are reading books, watching movies, listening to music, or just talking and learning from each other, there is no more cherished time of day than when he is surrounded by his wife and three kids. Because of his love for his children, and in order to help other people share quality time with their families, he finally decided to shirk his 9 to 5--more often 9 to 9—job and dust off his writing gloves in the hope that many more families will be able to connect in the same way that his now can.

As most of us know, children aren't good at putting away their clothes and toys. The author wrote a cute and fun little story of not understanding the importance of putting away your things.  It doesn't matter if it's cleaning up after supper or putting away your clothes when you go to bed..  The author puts in a lesson that the little boy's daddy is trying to teach him.  He tells his son that the Gnomes of the Night will take everything away if the things aren't put away properly.  But Daddy doesn't realize how clever Ryan is.  He tries to outsmart his daddy.   Will Ryan learn a valuable lesson by the end of the story.?  
 The illustrations done by Fanny Liem put realism to the characters.  The colors are bright so that they catch the readers eye quickly.  The author tells his story in rhyme which seems to be quite a job to make some of the the rhymes come out right.  The book was just charming with a valuable lesson to be learned.   Wonderful!

I received a complimentary copy of THE GNOMES OF THE NIGHT from the author , Itzik Klein for my view of the book.

I would give this book 5 BALLS.
