Three Little Gnomes and a Boy Name Orion is Rhonda Paglia's fourth children's book.  She was delighted to work with illustrator Ratna Kusuma Halim from Indonesia.  "Creating this story with Ratna was a wonderful, magical adventure for both of us," said Rhonda.  Although they were half-way around the world from each other, "I felt that Ratna was reading my thoughts as I watched her images come across my computer screen."  Rhonda and Ratna hope readers will get as much enjoyment from this little story as they did creating it!
