It is with great pleasure that we can announce the release of the third and final instalment of Ali Foster‘s children’s Ginomees Trilogy, The Cave at the End of the Universe. “It has been a pleasure to work with Ali on this series, and marrying her wonderful sketches with her fantastical writing,” said Gerry Huntman, Managing Director of IFWG. “The concept of cast-away garden gnomes having lives and souls – and very different personalities – was enchanting for us at IFWG and we knew this was a worthwhile project. The three covers by the very talented New Zealand artist, Cheryl Smith (of Macarn Designs) was the icing on the cake.”
The Cave at the End of the Universe is, like its two predecessors, available in all good bricks and mortar and online stores, including in various ebook formats.
