“Ooo! I can gather 2 plus 2 plus 4 plus more!” he exclaimed.
The Gnome King asked to see his work. “Take this jar and fill it with jewels!”
Off ran Gnome Plus. Every time he found jewels, he added more. “Here’s three. Oooo! Plus two! Yes! Plus four.” It was not long before his jar was brimming with jewels. He counted his jewels over and over again. He loved counting his sparkling pile.
Gnome Plus proudly went back to the Gnome King. “Look my King, I have a jar of jewels for your treasure chest!”
The Gnome King was thrilled. Gnome Plus was given a cape and cap of green and a special sign so that everyone would know his special gift of adding. Gnome Plus stood proud next to his pile of jewels. He guarded it and counted it for the King everyday.
