The Blunt Gnome and Shiny Gnome
"The Blunt Gnome and the Shiny Gnome" from the So Many Fairies Audio Story Series. Blunt Gnomes and Shiny Gnomes fundamentally disagree on how to work with gems. They feel so strongly about it, they refuse to even meet with the other kind. But when Gnath, a blunt gnome, and Lonrach, a Shiny Gnome, meet one day in a cave situated exactly between the two gnome lands, the two groups are forced to work this out. The result surprises them, and though their perspectives do not change much, their understanding of the other side does.
