Listen to the author,
Joy Bashara,
reading an excerpt of
Eilert the Gnome Loses Home.

Eilert the Gnome
Loses Home

Where Was Eilertís Home?

Did he belong near Boe, Norway? Maybe so. Grandpa Jim had named him Eilert Boe. Was his home near the woods with Karin, Helmer, and the other gnomes? Where was home and how could he find it again?

What Happens When a Gnome Disappears
from Your Garden?

Eilert the gnome, the main character in the new book Eilert the Gnome Loses Home, didnít know. Neither did June Nyberg, the illustrator of the book. Her own Eilert disappeared several months ago. He returned briefly, but then he disappeared a second time. Juneís real-life experience sparked an idea in Joy Bashara, Juneís friend, to write a story about Eilert, a gnome who loses home.

"I was inspired by Juneís story," Joy explains, "to write the Gnome Came Home Series in order to stimulate childrenís minds about what home means and where you find home."

Joyís telling of Eilertís story so clearly depicted the characters in the book that her words easily became pictures for June.

This book is intended to be read by children as well as with children. Using her playwriting skills, Joy has created a play of the story for presentation by elementary school children.

Writer Joy Bashara is a resident of Green Bay, Wisconsin, and a lifelong educator. Illustrator June Nyberg lives in Superior, Wisconsin, and is a long-time teacher and a lover of folk art.


Eilert the Gnome Came Home is the first of a four book series. Written for children from five to ten years old, these books follow Eilert on his journey to find home, during which he learns several truths including that life is filled with changes you can handle, family are the people who care for you, and home is a place in your heart.

Price: $8.99 plus tax, shipping and handling.
