Once upon a time, maybe last Saturday, an underground gnome named Alexander decided to go up above his cozy, earthen home. Alexander was a little guy, dressed in overalls, just under two inches tall. He was different from his other friends. They were perfectly content in their little cottages hidden among the roots of the trees, snuggled at the ends of mole tunnels, or perched among hidden rocky cave ledges.
Alexander wanted something more. He wanted to explore. He had heard that up above (although he wasn’t sure where that was), there was a great, bright light that grew big, and then small, until it disappeared. Then it grew big again. It was very hot and was called the Sun. He decided, “I am going to see the world of the Sun.”
By digging upwards, Alexander finds the world above where the sun rises and sets, and new friends come to welcome him: Flower Fairies, Tree Spirits, Dragonfly Riders, Kurt the Rock Gnome, and the beautiful lake fairies who touch his heart—Staria, Latia, and Selene.
“Evening Fairy Song
`You have come up from the Underground
To see the Sun-bright world….
We bless you on your Gnome Home away.
Come back again to dance and play.’ ”
