Herein are 17 illustrated stories by Robert Gordon Anderson with 16 full-page colour illustrations by Dorothy Hope Smith. This volume is the sequel to The Seven O'Clock Stories also written by Robert Gordon Anderson and with the same three happy children and are short stories of everyday happenings on a farm. The story of the Big Bobsled, even contains instructions on how to make your own. The volume is introduced with "The Top Of The Morning" which is the saying the Toymaker uses as a greeting, no matter the weather which sets the tone of the book. The stories are: "The Top Of The Morning" I The Little Lost Fox II The Big Bobsled III The Jolly Roger IV The Blue Croaker, The Bright Agate, And The Little Gray Mig V The Old Woman Who Lived On The Canal VI Two O' Cat VII The Fairy Lamp VIII The Animals' Birthday Party IX Dr. Philemon Pipp, The Patient Medicine Man X When Jehosophat Forgot His Piece XI Ole Man Pumpkin XII The Norway Spruce XIII When The Door Opened XIV The Hole That Ran To China XV The Peppermint Pagoda XVI He That Took The City These stories are simply and naturally told and are for children aged five to nine years old. As with all children’s stories, they have originated in a place where good wishes come true: where the poor and the lonely are rich and live in castles and have friends: and where sorrowful folk are happy. Here you will hear the birds singing and children laughing, all day long. The trees are full of blossoms and fruit. The sky is always blue, the grass green and soft. Under the trees dwell the fairies, and against the blue sky you will sometimes see the sheen of angels’ wings as the flit by. We invite you to curl up with this unique sliver of Fairy culture not seen in print for over a century; and immerse yourself in the tales and fables of yesteryear. 10% of the net sale will be donated to charities by the publisher. ---------------------------- KEYWORDS/TAGS: fairy tales, folklore, myths, legends, children’s stories, children’s stories, bygone era, fairydom, fairy land, classic stories, children’s bedtime stories, happy place, happiness, top of the morning, little lost fox, big bobsled, jolly roger, pirate, blue croaker, bright agate, little gray mig, old woman, lives on the canal, two o' cat, fairy lamp, animals, birthday party, dr. philemon pipp, patient, medicine man, jehosophat, forgot, piece, ole man, pumpkin, Norway spruce, door, open, hole, ran, runs, to china, peppermint pagoda, took, take, city, Jehosophat, Marmaduke, and Hepzebiah, Green, old, uncles, aunts, White House, Green Blinds, Side of the Road, fishing, pond, swim, Toyman, Methusaleh, playmates, friends, feathers, fur, Monday morning, Thursday noon, Saturday night, lessons, lights, fireflies, twinkle, Father, Mother

Those who dont die in the initial explosionsas their bodies nervous systems are fatally disruptedfind themselves living without electricity. Planes plummet from the sky, and modern life comes to a screeching halt. Now only time will tell if humanity will ever recover. In this science fiction novel, powerful neutron bombs devastate human life on earth, leaving the survivors to pick up the pieces.
