Interactive Author Read Aloud: The Disappearing Forest


Join Mount Grace and author Steve Shanley for an interactive read aloud of his new book. The Disappearing Forest is a "choose your own adventure" type of story where you will get to decide what happens! Will you help Gary and his class of gnomelings save the world from their greatest threat yet?

It was just a normal day of hiking for Gary and his class of gnomelings until strange sounds are heard near Cherry Grove... Immerse yourself in the lovable world of gnomes as they struggle to preserve their secret way of life from the ever-wanting, ever-progressing...humans. Help Gary make wise decisions and endure the consequences as he's constantly torn between age-old gnomish traditions and a bold new way…

Steve Shanley grew up in East Aurora, NY. He loves the natural world and spends his days teaching it throughout the northeast for an educational non-profit. When school is out, he's usually travelling internationally conducting gnomthropological research. The Disappearing Forest was written as a surprise for his nieces and nephews who know and love Gary Gnomelley as a real gnome who has to look fake in order to trick people!
