Readers of the Geraldine Woolkins Series will recognize the Book of Tales as the book Nigel Woolkins, an elder mouse, reads to his family at night. When the Woolkins family gathers by the fireplace at night, they read from this, the family’s most treasured book. Passed down from generation to generation, the book contains stories of danger, faith, and perseverance.
Set in forests, fields, ponds, and backyard butterfly gardens, Volume One contains fifteen illustrated tales in all. From a fox who must choose between his friends and his baby sister to a hedgehog facing monumental change and goldfish torn from the safety of their pet store aquarium.
