Avis the Watchful Yellow Jacket (from the So Many Fairies Series)
Yellow Jackets love people. They build their houses as close to people as they can. The older yellow jackets have learned from their fairy friends not to get too close to people, but Avis, a young wasp, can't understand why. When a kind air fairy takes him on a journey of discovery, Avis learns how to get close to people without getting too close.
A Bird in the Airport (from the By Thistle By Thimble Series)
David has spent the last week with his grandparents, and he is nervous about flying home. He is not nervous about flying — he likes flying — but he is nervous about being home again. You see, his father has moved to a different house, and David isn’t sure what it will be like. As he sits in the airport, he sees something surprising. It is a bird sitting on a television monitor. He marvels at the sight, and is about to show his grandfather, when he hears a message — seemingly just for him.
The Brownie and the Lost Squirrel (from the So Many Fairies Series)
In a sudden and dramatic snow storm, an old squirrel loses his way. Luckily a forest fairy, or “brownie,” has been watching over the squirrel since he was a kit. The helpful brownie gains the support of an air fairy, a water nymph, and a fire sprite to help the squirrel back to his cozy nest and family.
Listening to the Story Whispers (from the Martin & Sylvia: More Adventures! Series)
When brother and sister attend a storytelling workshop, Sylvia insists on telling her "Babbit Stories." She can't wait! She knows everyone will love them. Then the storyteller teaches her that some of the best stories come from listening.
The Tree That Surprised the Wind (from the So Many Fairies Series)
A maple tree elf has had enough. He is tired of the wind coming every year and knocking down his beautiful golden leaves. So he devises a plan: this year his tree will surprise the wind and shake of its own accord. He smiles to think of teaching the wind a lesson, but in the end it is he who learns the lesson that one must not meddle with the nature of the wind.
