Long ago, America was settled not only by Europeans crossing the great ocean, but small, enchanted folk like fairies, dwarfs, and elves. Deep in the forest, they set up hidden communities that spread and flourished. In time, it was possible to find, almost anywhere, swarms of fairies flying beneath the woodland canopy or tiny elves scurrying through the underbrush. And one of them went by the name of Winker Leafkin….


This book shares twelve exciting adventures of Winker Leafkin as this tiny elf plunges headlong into trouble and magically finds his way out again. Winker battles storm-tossed seas, gets mistaken for a leprechaun, and makes the fireflies dance. He is always hiding from humans, or escaping from them. With each predicament he finds himself in, the young elf grows a bit wiser than before, but that never stops the fun with Winker Leafkin.


Each story relates to a month of the year. Many relate to holidays: New Year’s Day, Groundhog’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, April Fool’s Day, May Day, Independence Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.
