Ruby Red: Tales from the Weedwater by Henrietta Branford
Five exquisitely written stories about a contemporary sprite, by an award-winning author.* Ruby Red is a lively and modern little sprite -- a-do-it-yourself, solve-everything kind of a child in a miniature world. She and her friends inhabit an enchanting and pastoral dwelling close to the River Weedwater. Meet the Gargoyle, who only likes striking six o-clock; Floyd, the Mechanical Wonder Horse -- put out to pasture from the fairground; Firecracker Fly, fearsome pirate who sails the Weedwater on the good ship Fly-By-Night; Columbine, Cluck, and Crinkle -- the hens who love worms and...skating; Grandma Samphire who lives on an island and windmill dweller Sweet Grandpa William, who hates to wash his socks. Five enchanting stories in one book from this prize-winning author.
