Overview
Reece's Vintage Tales, a sequel to the award-winning Reece's Timeless Tales, is a collection of ten original and two adapted children's stories. The tales are refreshingly humorous, inventive and exciting, written with zest and with an unexpected plot twist that will keep readers, young and not-so-young, entertained. Three of the stories have Christian underpinnings. There is a glossary at the end of each story so that the young readers can expand their vocabulary with the occasional hard words found.

Reeces' Vintage Tales consists of the following stories: 1) The famed garment-maker, who is commissioned to make the coronation robe, could not make his hands do what he wants 2) A prince, who has everything, loses the one lady he truly loves because of his vanity 3) The moon-babes find their Lost Atlantis in a most unusual and unexpected time-warp manner 4) The legend of a young but bright boy saving a child from drowning lives on even today 5) The spunky mustard seed witnesses the promise his CREATOR made to him comes to pass in an amazing way 6) A poor childless couple is blessed by the Rainbow Babies who lead the king's men to death in the nick of time 7) A pair of twins fights to survive before and after birth by lovingly encouraging each other to hang in there 8) A cunning 'Vegetarian Wolf' is outwitted by none other than Little Green Riding Hood's grandfather 9) Two mice save the eating house of the master chef from being burned down and are rewarded with gourmet fame 10) A professor learns a lesson of resilience from a despised willow tree 11) A gorgeous pig does what she loves most and comes away laughing all the way to the bank 12) A rabbit uses his ingenuity regarding his bodily gas to save his tribe from extinction.
About the author
N. Reece Ho-Sheffield is a retired medical doctor and asst. professor who had practiced clinically for many years in the United Kingdom and in the United States of America. She specialized in pediatrics and medical genetics. A prolific medical writer, she had published numerous articles in premier peer-reviewed medical journals such as The New England Journal of Medicine and The Lancet. Since retirement, she develops a love for writing fictional children's stories and any other stories blessed, inspired, moved and motivated by the HOLY SPIRIT for her to put pen to paper, inventing unique children's games, and creating novel art and craft. Reece is a devout Christian. Her hobbies include intensive bible study, training to be a marathoner and cooking/experimenting with different varieties of hummus and fresh frozen yoghurt. Whatever she does, she wants to be a trail-blazer. One of her dreams is to create a safe preservative that can be added to surplus cooked food, keeping the food as unspoiled as possible, for months to a year, and which can therefore be transported to under-developed countries. Reece won the USA Mom's Choice Awards for The Firefly Story (under the name of Nicola C. Ho, M.D.) and Reece's Timeless Tales (N. Reece Ho, M.D.). You can blog with her in Facebook.
