Our world is not only that which we can see, feel and touch - there is much more to it. There are beings around us whom most adults are unable to see or communicate with. Nevertheless they are there. The author tells us about such beings angels whose task it is to be on our side, guide us through life, protect and teach us. Max, the Gnome, who dwells in a garden together with his colleagues, also has an angel who is in charge of him. This sublime being takes Max on journeys into that world which we cannot see. Thus, Max is learning a lot about the meaning of life and the deep truths about the earth and all creation.
