Do you ever wonder if there is a gnome living in the hole at the bottom of the old tree in the park?
Have you ever felt like you weren't alone while in the woods?
Did you know that elves are responsible for many of our day-to-day occurrences?
If your mind ever fills with these kinds of questions, then these modern fairy tales are for you!
What a wonderful collection of stories. The narration made me feel as though I was snuggled up by a fire listening to a storyteller rocking away in his chair while he passed down stories of wisdom and wonder. Overall, the stories made me really want to believe in magic and cause me to take a second look or to reminisce upon the audiobook itself when I find myself wandering about outside.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Gnome in the Neighborhood to be better than the print version?
Yes, the narrator, Alan Weyman, is great. He has a great voice that really puts the feeling into the words.
What did you like best about this story?
It was a series of short stories that were all very enchanting and fun to listen to. Would be great for children and adults who like fantasy or fairy tales.
Have you listened to any of Alan Weyman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
My first time listening to this narrator and I will definitely be looking for others of his.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The first story(Chapter 3) and the second story (chapter 4) were my favorites.
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
This consisted of seven short stories concerning magic. They were... pretty strange. If you like short whimsical fun stories, this is for you. It was well written and I liked the writing style of the author.
Also, the narrator had a very gravelly voice and it didn't sit well with me for this novel.
I really enjoyed listening to the book! Easy to listen to. Will recommend to friends.
