The Gnomes of Genom is a debut novel by sixty year old Ibiza resident Tony Curtis and a children’s book. It was inspired by the stories that he used to tell to his daughter Rachael at bedtime, which over the years she memorized.

Unfortunately Rachael died of cancer at the tender age of 27, so Tony wrote this collection of stories to keep alive his memories of their happy days together. Some years later it occurred to Tony that in these days of falling literacy it would be a good idea to publish the stories for other parents to read to their own children. This, in itself, has the benefit of encouraging children to read for themselves rather than having to beg for stories at bedtime. The other more subtle benefit is that enjoyed by the parent – the immense pleasure derived from reading to your own child. A daily dose of quality time for both parent and child…

We won’t spoil your mutual pleasure when reading by disclosing the plot at this stage, suffice it to say that ‘The Gnomes of Genom’ is, of course, dedicated to Rachael.
