    1. I wasn't really into the story even though the reading was good, short and simple. I did like the wordplay of Gnome and Nome as well as the moral of the story. What I didn't like was the illustration for in my opinion they weren't as top job as some of the others. And the other thing I didn't like was they were paying to find a secret that they should have found with each other. It just seemed a bit over the top for me, especially when it was the greedy actions that wasn't friendship was said to [...]



    2. This book is the heartwarming, (literally, haha) tale of a gnome finding true love in an otter, in alaska, by using some totally real "magic gnome paint" to make fake, real gold, and trick some losers into telling them the secret of love. Probably, the best thing i've ever seen by Serendipity. Which is to say, the only thing.


    3. Firstly, that is the weirdest looking otter around. Robin James is normally such a spot-on, beautiful illustrator, but this book felt like the Duplo toy version of her normal work. Secondly, I get that Serendipity books are pretty warm and fuzzy, but this oneis was kind of ridiculous. Never in a million years do I buy that people in search of gold would teach others how to love. The first reaction of them not even noticing the gnome and the otter is much closer.The tie-in to the town of Nome is [...]


    4. I absolutely love Cosgrove's books. I had them when I was little so I was thrilled to find hardbacks recently at Half-price books. The illustrations are fabulous and every story has a moral to it. They are the perfect length for an older preschooler or young grade school child. Not too long, with enough illustration in the picture to really hold them captive.


    5. All the serendipity books are absolutely wonderful. I love the illustrations. I think they must be from the 70's or 80's. I got them secondhand from my next door neighbor when I was a little girl. I love gnomes!


    6. I love the idea of the book and I especially liked the ending. It made me feel really grateful for the friendships that I had. However, the book was quite long and I’m not sure if it would hold the students attention.


    7. A sweet story about a very cold gnome who is trying to warm up, and goes south hoping to find a warmer climate. He meets an otter who helps him to find warmth. The illustrations, which drew me to the book, are lovely.I didn't realize, since I was unable to read the book before I purchased it, that the friend of the gnome was a sea otter. I have a bit of an otter fixation, so I have to point out that the cover and other illustrations are of a river otter (white bib, snout, primarily land bound), [...]


    8. Usually children's books that clearly are out to teach a lesson get on my nerves but not Stephen Cosgrove's. I loved reading the Serendipity books as a child, and read several to my own children. When we received this sweet book from far away friends we immediately snuggled up to enjoy. Gnome from Nome is endearing with clear, bright illustrations by Robin James. A warmth filled book for children and adults alike!


    9. This is a book from my childhood that my mother was getting rid of; so I grabbed it and absorbed it into my own library. :D Gnome was cold. He moved somewhat south to get warmer, then discovered that friendship is the best warm blanket ever.


    10. A book about a Gnome and an Otter looking to get warm, but along the way they start the Alaskan gold rush and found Nome Alaska. (???) It's weird, I know. I can hardly believe it as I type it. Not one of the better Serendipity stories.


    11. I'd completely forgotten about this book until I saw it on the bookshelf of my friends' daughter! Oh what fun to read it again! I love the Serendipity books. This one tells a sweet story about love and friendship.




    12. Just no. Picture books can be deep, insightful, and clever, as well as entertaining. This wasn't one of them. Oh well.


    13. Check out my blog, Books from Bleh to Basically Amazing for my thoughts and memories of the Serendipity series!




    14. Cute book about Alaska and friendship. The illustrations are well done and a pleasure to look at while reading the story.
