A new children’s book which depicts Boris Johnson as a gnome is being released this week to mark 12 months since the Prime Minister announced the first UK lockdown.

‘Stay at Gnome - A Lockdown Tale’, which also features Joe Wicks as a gnome, tells the story of Gorwin and Keya as they followed the rules and stayed at home during lockdown.

The book, written by North West journalists Phil Brennan and Richard Clein, is aimed at children aged 5-9. It chronicles the gnomes time indoors and permitted daily exercise together while at the same time highlighting their hopes and dreams for life once lockdown ends.

Phil Brennan, co-author said:

“We wanted to mark the end of lockdown by bringing to life some of our shared experiences.

“After such a tough time for us all, we hope Gorwin and Keya bring a smile to people’s faces as they exercise with the nation’s PE teacher Joe Wicks and tune into press conferences with head gnome, Boris Johnson.”

Richard Clein, co-author said:

“By creating our two gnomes, we think children will enjoy following their journey and that it resonates with their own experiences.

“It could prove a useful educational resource for schools and help teach future generations about the pandemic.”

‘Stay at Gnome - A Lockdown Tale’, set to be translated into more than 20 languages, is illustrated by Rob Purdon and is available from Amazon and stayatgnome.co.uk priced £8.99.
