The Tales of Tiptoes Lightly by Reg Down
Here is the original collection of stories of the beloved fairy Tiptoes Lightly by Waldorf teacher and master storyteller Reg Down.
Stories in this first volume include:
- "The Bee Who Lost His Buzz"
- "Pumpkin Crow"
- "Lucy Goose and the Half-Egg"
Tiptoes Lightly lives high up in the branches of a Great Oak Tree, overlooking Running River. She and her friends enjoy many colorful adventures!
First they help a bee who's been snagged on a thorn belonging to grumpy Mr. Cactus.
Next they visit the house of Pine Cone and Pepper Pot, and sail down to the sea to untangle Octopus, who is too young to count his legs properly and gets them all mixed up!
Later they journey to Snowy Mountain to visit Jack Frost, who tells them the dramatic story of his origin.
Finally, after many adventures big and small, they find the real mother of the half-egg that Lucy Goose found in the mud and is determined to hatch along with her own eggs.
With plentiful illustrations by the author, these are simple, innocent and magical nature stories.
Both humorous and reverent, these stories are suitable for reading alound to pre-readers, or for older children to read themselves.
Soft cover; 104 pages.
Ages 4-9 (although adults love them, too!)
