              A young shepherd hears a cricket singing at his feet. The cricket speaks to him and foretells that the coming winter will be both special and especially cold. Then he disappears back into the grass. The winter is indeed especially harsh, but on a star-studded night the cricket an...d the shepherd boy make their way to a manger huddled low between two hills. There they find a mother and father with a child who radiates light and warmth into the world. This innocent and warmhearted nativity tale is intended for parents to read to their children at Christmas time. While the story itself is timeless, this tale is most suitable for children from preschool to grade four or five.

              Tiptoes Lightly is a fairy who lives in an acorn high in the branches of a Great Oak Tree. Big-Stamp Two-Toes the Barefoot Giant follows her adventures, and those of her friends, through springtime at Farmer John's. On the way Ompliant the Elephant has his leg pulled by Chit-Chat... the Chipmunk; Tiptoes sails down to the sea and brings Spinner the Dolphin back with her to see flowers for the very first time; Tom Nutcracker tracks giant footprints into the forest but gets himself treed, and Meadow Mouse almost gets eaten by Tiger the Cat. Many tales and legends are also told: Miranda the spring pixie remembers how the little blue and yellow forget-me-not came to be; a rock spirit reveals how his rock ended up lying in the middle of the forest so far away from the Snowy Mountains (because of Big-Stamp Two-Toes the Barefoot Giant, of course!), and Mr. Rabbit tells the Jeremy Mouse and his mouselings the Legend of Oak Knoll Warren. Big-Stamp Two-Toes the Barefoot Giant is lavishly illustrated by the artist-author. These stories are reverent, humorous, sanguine and even, at times, spiritual. They are innocent and magical tales, suitable for reading to young children or for young children to read.

              The Tales of Tiptoes Lightly
               

              The Tales of Tiptoes Lightly (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Tiptoes Lightly lives in an acorn high up in the branches of a Great Oak Tree. One morning she finds a note lying on her floor. It says: Please help! Bee has lost his buzz! She and her friend, Jeremy Mouse, set off down Running River to help the hapless bee. Mr. Cactus, being gru...mpy and extra thorny, has snagged Bee's buzz on one of his thorns. Thus begins the adventure that takes Tiptoes to the house of Pine Cone and Pepper Pot (they're not at home-just yet), down to the sea to untangle Octopus (he's too young to count his legs properly and gets them mixed up), and up to Snowy Mountain to find out from Jack Frost himself whether he is a gnome (Pepper Pot says he's a gnome because he makes crystals) or a fairy (Tiptoes says he's a fairy because he flies through the air). Jack Frost tells his own creation myth which answers the question in a powerful and striking way. The 'Tales of Tiptoes Lightly' is comprised of three adventures: 'The Bee who lost his Buzz', 'Pumpkin Crow' and 'Lucy Goose and the Half-egg.' Lavishly and lovingly illustrated by the artist-author, they are humorous, sanguine and droll. They are innocent and magical nature tales, suitable for reading to young children or for young children to read.
