The Knight of Gnomes Knoll
The gnomes had never had a visitor before but one
winter morning, Gorshel, a Tarpong from Merritek, climbs the 500 steps to
ask the gnomes a favor. The gnomes would not grant the favor. Mardank then
gives them a riddle to solve: What comes on four legs, forms a ball and
hangs around your neck? The gnomes did not know and decided to send a
knight on a quest to find the answer to the riddle. Gnefrus was chosen as
the knight. He eventually finds the answer, but did he find it in time?
The answer to the riddle is in this
Christmas story. The Knight of Gnomes Knoll
was written and illustrated by Denise Hillman
Moynahan. It is unpublished.
