The Bee who lost his Buzz
Pumpkin Crow
Lucy Goose and the Half-Eg

Follow the adventures of Tiptoes Lightly, a fairy who lives in an acorn high up in the branches of a Great Oak Tree. Her tree sits on a knoll overlooking Running River, and she and her friends have a host of adventures. First they help the bee who lost his buzz – snagged on a thorn belonging to grumpy Mr. Cactus!

Then they visit the house of Pine Cone and Pepper Pot and sail down to the sea to untangle Octopus – he’s too young to count his legs properly and gets them mixed up!

They journey up to Snowy Mountain to hear from Jack Frost himself what kind of being he really is – and Jack tells the dramatic tale of how he came to be. Finally, after too many adventures to list here, they find out who the real mother of the half-egg is – one that Lucy Goose found in the mud and is determined to hatch along with her own eggs.

Ompliant’s Owie
Big-Stamp Two-Toes the Barefoot Giant

Accompany Tiptoes Lightly and her many friends as they journey through springtime. Ompliant the Elephant gets to see Jemima Mouse’s babies (he just can’t believe they are pink with no fur!), but not before his leg has been thoroughly, and humorously, pulled by Chit-Chat the Chipmunk.

However, Ompliant’s feet are big, and the very next day Tom Nutcracker bravely follows the giant footprints deep into the forest – only to get himself hopelessly treed (luckily you-know-who helps him down in the end

Other adventures are had too; such as when Tiptoes meets Spinner the Dolphin and shows him his very first flowers, and Pine Cone and Pepper Pot the gnomes sail down Running River to Pixie Island and hear how the little blue and yellow Forget-me-not got its name. Later, while visiting ‘The Rock’, they are told how this huge boulder came to be sitting in the middle of the forest – because of Big-Stamp Two-Toes the Barefoot Giant, of course!

the book cover of THE MAGIC KNOT & OTHER TANGLES by Reg Down

The Magic Knot is a making-tale comedy, starring Pine Cone and Pepper Pot the gnomes. They decide, since it is soon to be Tiptoes’ birthday and she has no furniture in her little house, to make her one table and three chairs. A simple task for clever gnomes—so we would think! But, from the finding of the ‘perfect’ branch, to getting the table and chairs to the top of the Great Oak Tree where Tiptoes’ acorn house swings back and forth, things go awry. On the way they get the help of a host friends: Ompliant the Elephant, Jeremy Mouse, the Carpenter Ants, Chiron the Pony and Spin-a-lot the Spider (to name just a few). Finally, when her surprise birthday party finally rolls around, Tiptoes tells the enchanting tale of how she came to live in the Great Oak Tree as a daughter of Father Sun and Mother Wind.

An additional, brief, story, The Tale of None, is found at the end of the book. It is about a ladybug who had no spots—none at all!—until she completes her spot-finding journey to India, Africa and America ...
