The Velveteen Rabbit with Annotations

This beautiful story written in 1922 by Margery Williams is almost 100 years old and about a time in history before there was antibiotic treatment for scarlet fever, a potentially fatal childhood disease. It's a story not only about survival, but resilience, change, love, and fairy magic.

Surly the Garden Gnome

Surly the Garden Gnome is annoyed by the lack of instructions on parenting that he finds in the Gnominomicon. 1) Be Kind. 2) Listen Deeply. How is that helpful advice? Especially when he finds his garden overrun by baby fairies. It's going to be a busy summer for Surly.
