But I came across a passage in an old book about the best way to attract gnomes: bubbles! Gnomes love bubbles--who knew? Once I broke them out, she slowly emerged from the woods.
It took awhile. She even gave them a taste, but nothing was working.
She began to lose hope.
But gnomes are a stubborn lot, so she stuck with it and eventually--success!
She was so happy, she even smiled for the camera.
