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.
