The Gnomes From Woodland Grove, Part 1

Gnomes are mythical creatures and very family-oriented. When the mother of little Bobby and Sue passed away three years ago, Grandpa and Grandma Fern moved in to help raise the kids. It wasn't easy but with the family all together and love in their hearts, they survived.

It was hard work but as their mother always used to say, "even hard work can be fun with the right attitude." Bobby and Sue would sing and dance as they helped their grandparents clean the house and the yard. Of course Grandma and Grandpa joined in on the singing and dancing. Once the chores are done, Bobby and Sue are allowed to go outside and play on their teeter totter; their most favorite thing to do. Grandma's favorite thing to do is to sing songs with the children and teach them new ones while Grandpa's favorite thing to do is tell the kids stories - sometimes scary ones.

While their father is a very hard worker, providing for his family, he always makes time to play with his children. There is not a day that goes by that the Fern house is not full of singing voices, laughter and a good story. Zookned is like his father; he also likes to tell the children scary stories. Bobby and Sue enjoy even the scary stories and although they may have heard a particular story multiple times (sometimes Grandpa forgets he's already told a certain tale), they would act just as surprised or scared as the first time they heard it.
