I wanted to share with you about an adorable little book that I won in a giveaway from Father Geek (read his review here) – Nerni Invents Clock.
Nerni the gnome loves to invent things, but when she invents an intelligent clock, things don’t go according to plan! Nerni Invents Clock is a picture book designed to be read to 0-4 year olds.
Or, of course, for slightly older kids to read themselves!
The language is simple, and repetitive in a pleasant way. The artwork is likewise very simple and uncluttered. The story is very creative, and the characters are cute. It’s just plain fun and appealing.
My kids really enjoyed the story of Nerni and her clock, and there is much imaginary gnome play after each time it’s read.
You can pick up a copy for your little gnomes on Amazon:
And now Todd Edwards has a new book out for Nerni fans – Nerni’s Ingenious Inventions!
Flying Goblin, and
Og’s New Roaster
It is intended for a slightly older audience, with the author suggesting reading it to your 2-5 year old.
As adults, we found these stories to be pleasant enough, if not quite as engaging as the original. The language and artwork were the same delightful style at the first book, making it fun to read.
The kids were delighted, and the alliterative phrase “Gnome named Nerni” (which is repeated in each story) must have been chanted a thousand times…
Now one of our lucky As For My House readers will win an autographed copy of Nerni’s Ingenious Inventions, and another will win an autographed copy of Nerni Invents Clock, directly from the author!
I was “disclosing” before it was cool. See my Review Policy for the full scoop.
