Griswald is a little gnome who lives in the rain gutter. Then one day, a storm washes him down the drainpipe and into an old rain barrel. 

At first, Griswald is unsure about his new home, but soon he meets all the animals, birds and plants that live in the garden and has wonderful adventures with his new friends.

Through the seasons, Griswald explores a whole new world in the garden, gets into sticky situations, helps his new companions and even learns to dance!

(Ages 6 to 10 years) 

“Daniela Drescher's watercolor illustrations have such wonderful detail that you can feel transported to the seasons of the garden while you enjoy the problems, fun and games of Griswald's life.” —Juno Magazine
