Gnomes (first published in Dutch in 1976 as Leven en werken van de kabouter; English, 1977), one in a series of books, was written by Wil Huygen and illustrated by Rien Poortvliet.[1] The book explains the life and habitat of gnomes in an in-universe fashion, much as a biology book would do, complete with illustrations and textbook notes.
