This book will entertain youngsters with its fanciful tales of talking raccoons, a pet fawn, a goat that’s always in trouble, flowers from heaven and a frog named Freddy. There are also a cheerful water sprite named Pixie and the knight who won a surprising battle. If, among the pages, a life lesson is learned, that’s okay. For beginning readers as well as sophisticated pre-teens, the book will be a delight to read, with prose that flows with its own rhythm and simple but well-constructed language. Little ones will love to have the stories read to them, again and again. Two of the stories have been read to grade school classes, and they loved them. You will love them all.
