It was a very nice day, and finally getting warmer. Since today was a beautiful day, Professor Isles took her students outside for today’s lesson. She had sent out notes to every student, telling them to meet her on the Training Grounds. Madam Hooch had told her they had a gnome infestation there, and since that was this lesson’s topic, she thought it was best to go to them.
All her students were outside on time, and Professor Isles smiled as she started. “Good morning, class,” she said. “As you can see, it’s a beautiful day today, so I wanted to take you outside to study gnomes. Can anyone tell me what a gnome looks like?” she asked.
A tiny Gryffindor student raised her hand. “It has a beard and a pointy hat,” she said with a smile. Unfortunately, this answer was wrong, and Professor Isles shook her head.
“I’m sorry, but that’s wrong. That is, however, what Muggle garden gnomes look like,” Professor Isles said to the student. She was a Muggleborn, and had never heard about magical gnomes. “Our gnomes no more than 1ft tall, are usually brown in color and have potato-like heads.”
