|Childrens stories and fables for
the young at heart of all ages, all of them original, complete, and
absolutely free; and none of them available anywhere else in the
world except here.
They do not depend on animated pictures, so you can print them off
then read them anywhere you want: in bed, or curled up in an armchair,
or on the bus, or wherever else is comfortable.
There will be a new story from time to time; all of them are completely
free, and there is nothing violent or cruel or nasty in any of them:
that's a promise.
These short storybooks are about all the many little
creatures that have made their homes in the meadow that lies next to the Old
They are about Robert the
Rabbit, known to everybody
as Robbit, and his best friend Jonathan, the smartest
and cleverest snail in the whole meadow.
As well as Robbit and Jonathan, there are Millicent, the harvest
mouse, Andrew the ant, and many, many more - not forgetting the animals'
special friends, Farmer Jack, and his wife, Katie, who live in the Old Farmhouse.
The Old Farmhouse is called that
because that is what it is - an old farmhouse.
In fact, it's a very old farmhouse: so old that it's become all
wobbly, just like a very old person.
Its roof is wobbly and its walls are wobbly and, inside, its floors
are wobbly as well.
It's only a small farmhouse, but Farmer Jack, and his wife, Katie, are very happy there and wouldn't live anywhere
else in the whole, wide world.
The meadow lies close by the Old
Farmhouse, on a hill that leads down to a tiny stream
and a pond.
The meadow is small, just like the Old
Farmhouse, but, in the summer, when it's full with flowers,
it's so pretty that, sometimes, Farmer Jack and all meadow creatures sit there in the afternoon
sunshine and think how happy they are just to be there.
