“We’re ginomees, it says so right here. Look! G-N-O-M-E-S spells ginomees!”

A group of discarded garden ginomees turn their backs on the boredom of a lifetime in the garden and set out in search of adventure. When a good deed goes wrong, Noname and his friend Flutey are forced to fly over the Tripletoe Mountains to win back the hats stolen by a band of wild ginomees.

The Rejects is a juvenile fantasy novel, perfect for 8 to 10 year olds, but nevertheless delightful for all ages beyond.

Sneak Preview: The Rejects by Ali Foster

IFWG Publishing (Australia and International) prides itself for its juvenile and young teen titles, and recently we have won some significant adulation in this field – The Smoking Mirror‘s ALA Belpre Award honor title comes to mind, as well as the Brumbies series.

Keeping this in mind, and also adding our significant effort to have a strong presence in the New Zealand market, we want to share with you the beautiful cover for The Rejects by Ali Foster (Book 1 of the Ginomees Trilogy). New Zealand artist and designer Cheryl Smith created a wonderful cover capturing the characters in Ali’s book, and it also has vibrant colours – well suited to the 8-10 year old reader market (and all the way to adult, mind you).
