Gnomes (first published in Dutch in 1976 as Leven en werken van de kabouter) is a 1977 book, one in a series of books, written by Wil Huygen and illustrated by Rien Poortvliet.[1] The book is a mockumentary which explains the life and habitat of gnomes, much like a biology book would do, complete with illustrations and text book notes.

The 1980 film Gnomes, and the series David the Gnome and Wisdom of the Gnomes are based on this book.
