ARC Review: Santa, Please Bring Me a Gnome

33375922 Santa, Please Bring Me a Gnome by An Swerts
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Dear Santa... That's how Tess starts her letter. You don't have to bring me any toys this year. The only thing I want is a real gnome. Full of anticipation, Tess looks forward to the day her new friend arrives: a friend she can take everywhere, and with whom she can share everything. With Grandpa and Grandma's help, she gets everything ready. Grandpa builds little pieces of furniture, Grandma sews a little blanket, and Tess prepares a welcome meal. And then it's finally Christmas Eve ... Will Santa bring a real gnome? A heartwarming picture book with wonderfully funny illustrations.

This is a perfect example of why I still enjoy children's books! The lovable little Tess is smart, and has some big dreams! Wanting a friend she can take everywhere, she asks Santa for a real gnome! This charming tell shows how Santa handles such a big order, and it's sure to please! The pictures are well done, and pair beautifully with this story, giving in an atmosphere of hope and cheer.
