The Winter Gnome Games are coming to the Gnome Garden!
This is great news for Ginger. Every gnome in the Garden calls Ginger nicknames like “red” or “curly” because of her hair, but this Winter sports competition is the perfect chance to make a name for herself—her own name!
Gnomes compete in downhill sledding, figure skating, and curling, but Ginger can’t help showing off some daring skills in each event! Her rule-busting moves put her on thin ice with the judges. But when her friend Al needs help, Ginger proves with courage and creativity that she’s more than her appearance.
Game of Gnomes by Kirsten Mayer is a funny, sweet, and witty picture book about perseverance and blazing your own trail.
Don’t miss Ginger’s friend Al’s adventure in Go BIG or Go Gnome!
