The Gnomes’ Winter Journey

It’s the first snow of winter and the forest gnomes set off to visit their mountain cousins to celebrate the coming of the Winter Queen. On their cold journey the gnomes get help from dancing snow fairies, and a sledge pulled by friendly squirrels.

When the forest gnomes finally arrive at their cousins’ icy home there’s much fun to be had —snowball fights, tobogganing and a delicious feast with the elegant Winter Queen.

This is a gorgeous new edition of the classic and enchanting winter story first published in 1924. Swiss artist Ernst Kreidolf’s delightful illustrations of magical little folk are reminiscent of Elsa Beskow and Sibylle von Olfers.

About the Author

Konrad Ernst Theophil Kreidolf (1863-1956) was born in Berne Switzerland, the second eldest child of the Kreidolf family. In 1879, he began an apprenticeship as a lithographer in Constance, where he also took drawing lessons. The sale of his lithography Taegerwilen helped finance his artistic education at the Munich School of Arts and Crafts. Ultimately, he became best known for illustrating children’s books about flower fairies and other little folk. In 1922, Kreidolf became a member of the Berne Art Society and of the committee for new acquisitions for the Kunstmuseum in Berne. The following year, a large solo exhibition was shown at the Kunsthaus Zurich, and in 1933 he showed an extensive retrospective at the Kunsthalle Berne.
