In the first part of this book, there are eight short, fantasy vignettes written in rhyme, whose main "actors" are a variety of animal characters: a rabbit; a cat; a goose and a moose; an owl; a skunk; a beaver and a groundhog; a pigeon as well as a plant character named Willy the Wonderful Willow. Themes are set in current times. These rhymed stories celebrate friendship, love, good will and some adventure. The main character (or characters) faces a challenge that they meet with determination whether it is a stolen Easter; lights-out at Halloween; saving a friend from being late for an important appointment; or ripped from their garden home. The stories present a feel-good atmosphere to the reader without being goody-goody or sugary. In various presentations by the author, these pieces have been described as: "sweet and endearing," "positive and delightful," "lovely, clever and very readable," and "well-crafted." Because of their warm reception, the author was encouraged to place them on a platform available to a wider range of readers.
The second part of the book contains four stories: one about a flying purple pig; another about a harp that talks as well as plays music; a third about a magical Christmas pony; and the last about a crab with a friendly and philosophical attitude. Along with the main character whether pig, harp, pony or crab there are young persons as well as adults involved in the story. These young persons are between the ages of five to thirteen. Each story has some adventure and even a little mystery but again they celebrate friendship, love, and good will. Though written for middle school children, all ages seem to enjoy them. These stories as well as the rhymes in the first part of the book are for the young as well as the young at heart. They have found warm acceptance by many adults who feel that they are a respite from the harsh times of modern life.
