This is the original Gouache painting by Gerry Embleton.

One day a fairy overhears a miserable Gnome called Henry who wishes he was a King and his humble tree house a palace. And suddenly he is and it is; but little did he know what hard work it was being King and soon the Gnome wishes things were as they were before, social order is restored and the poor Gnome is a happy man again. A lesson for us all.

This is the first page of the story originally printed as page 12 of Once Upon A Time issue 117, 8th May 1971.
