Daiya the Balsam Poplar Dryad

A dryad is a tree spirit or nymph that lives in a tree. This Tales from the Lilypad original story by Marlene Wurfel is about a Black Poplar dryad named Daiya. This story is loosely inspired by Greek mythology and greatly inspired by my love for Balsam Poplars. Yeah, it gets a bit sappy.

The Girl Who Cried Pee

This must be the worst Tales From the Lilypad Episode yet. Or perhaps it's the best. Possibly it's just middling the pack. In any case: urine need of a warning: this episode use the word "pee" exactly 21 times and is mostly about pee. This modern remake of "The Boy Who Cried Wolf" has nothing to do with wolves but lots to do with soggy diapers.
