This is Gnomie, a character in Hurricane Boy. One of my favorite characters. This fellow was given to me by my friend and fellow writer Julie Gonzalez. Here is Julie's Website and Julie's Blog. Julie has three young adult books out through Delacorte.
Click on the book if you want to purchase these. I aspire to be like Julie someday. Anyway, Gnomie posts will be about Hurricane Boy as he (hopefully) comes closer to being published.
