The Cellar in the Woods
Micah and his older brother discover a curious tree, the remains of an old car, and an intact cellar hole in the woods. The cellar is shallow and constructed of big stones, and within it the boys find small treasures: old bottles, bits of rusted metal car parts and an unusual piece of glass crystal. Later that night, Micah learns from a magical little man in a dream that the crystal is something very special indeed.

Where Do the Stories Come From?
Many of the So Many Fairies and By Thistle By Thimble stories are inspired by thresholds or challenges that our children (or their parents) are facing. Moving to a new home, death of a beloved pet, teasing by peers, how to share a toy – these things we have met and continue to meet. And we meet them with story.
