What do you think when you hear "Once Upon A Time"? Fairy tales, of course! However, based on extensive reviews of bookstores and Amazon we discovered that there apparently has not been a completely NEW and ORIGINAL COLLECTION fairy tales and fables published in decades.
Sure the classics are great, but grandmother eating wolves? Our tales and fables are full of excitement and adventure, but totally non-violent. A gentle moral is woven into the fabric of each which will help open up conversations on right and wrong and living with a moral code.
In this very special book we bring the magic and wonder of mermaids, dragons, fairies, elves, witches, wizards, unicorns and more to spark the wonder and imaginations of a new generation. It is 100 pages of fantasy with 40 intriguing black and white illustrations.
These stories will provide parents and grandparents a wonderful opportunity to create lifelong memories and to bond with children in a special way. They will enchant the imaginations of both the listener and the storyteller and reveal another way to look at the universe.
Grandpa Grey is our storyteller. He is a wise old squirrel who lives in an Ancient Elm tree in the Forest of Delphi which lies in the heart of the Dream Realm. As he weaves his tales every evening to the children of the Forest of Delphi, we meet the magical and wondrous inhabitants of the Dream Realm.
Please join us in bringing something new and wonderful to children of all ages and the world. We are asking for your donations to help underwrite the costs of publishing, marketing, illustrating and all that goes with bringing magic to life.
