How to Survive a Garden Gnome Attack: 09/02/12
How to Survive a Garden Gnome Attack by Chuck Sambuchino offers advice on how to avoid being murdered by those cute and innocent looking garden gnomes. Beneath that painted exterior lies a blood thirsty killer.
Each page contains a full color photograph and some very pointed advice. There are things like recognizing foot prints, knowing your weapons, how to fortify your home, traps for the garden and so forth. After reading this book I'm convinced that it won't be vampires or zombies who will over run humanity — it'll be garden gnomes.
The book is written in a humorous, accessible language with appeal for all ages. My son poured over the book after I was finished and have recommended it to his friends.
According to the Screen Rant site, Roger Zemeckis is working on a movie adaptation of the book for Sony Pictures.

Enjoyed your review! I always knew that garden gnomes weren't as innocent as they looked! Little guys always gave me the creeps, and now I know why...

Yes. It all makes sense! And the book has so many full color photos as illustrations. It's a fun and informative (*grin*) read if you can find a copy.

I have to say it was the title of this book that caught my eye. Gnomes!? Really? I'm going to have to check this one out ASAP especially if you gave it 4 stars.
