This short story is about a mother wanting her children to enjoy the
outdoors. The story takes Nathan, Iris, and Mommy on another trip to the
national park. Nathan and Iris are extremely excited to visit with their new
friend, Gob the Gnome again. Gob takes Nathan, Iris, and Mommy on a short
tour of park and Nathan sees a large empty area of the park. Gob explains to
Nathan, Iris, and their mom the unfortunate realities of what happens in
some parks due to human interference and natural occurrences. Gob also
introduces the family to some of the animals and explains how they suffer
through deforestation, tornados, and storms. In this story Iris comes to age
by using what she learns from Gob to defend the forest.

Since the 1400s, folklore has described gnomes as guardians of treasure and
the protectors of Earth. Gnomes represent stability, growth, and good luck.
This is the second book of the six-book series about Gob the Gnome. The six
books in this series all revolve around Gob, the protector of a local
forest, who becomes friends with Nathan and Iris and helps to educate them
on the importance of caring for the environment.
