When a terrified gnome is stranded on Earth, fourteen-year-old Allie Thomas enlists the help of a powerful, yet unconventional, Guardian to save him.
Pettikin is a novel that feels familiar and magical, much like the world its young heroine inhabits. From the very first page, the twin realms of youthful reality and magical possibility allow the reader to enter a world they can relate to, while inspiring them to gleefully flip the pages as a twin universe beyond their imagination unspools.
