Synopses & Reviews
In the magic of a moonshower, a childless couple find a dozen tiny babies in the grass. Small enough to rock to sleep in a pair of wooden shoes, the children never grow. Even the tiniest babies can bring big adventures, though, and these little ones seem to find trouble as easily as bees find flowers. But the old couple's love never waivers and in the end they are rewarded with their hearts' desire.
Written in classic folktale tradition, illustrated with astonishing paintings, this beautiful story is woven from magic and moonbeams.
In the magic of a moonshower, a childless couple is given 12 times their heart's desire: a dozen tiny babies, small enough to rock to sleep in a pair of wooden shoes. But even tiny babies can bring big adventures. Full color.
