BOOK I: The United Acres of Sassafras

                           Bullywamp Skeetle, Bullywamp wamp,

                    Bullywamp Skeetle in The Black Mud Swamp

     In Book I, "The United Acres of Sassafras," Duke-The-Chameleon is dropped
on the lawn of Queeny’s Limestone Palace by a goldfinch on migration. 

Duke-The-Chameleon changes colors according to his surroundings and
emotions.  When Duke is sad, he goes to his crying rock, turns blue, and
plays his harmonica.  He turns bright red when he is agitated or angry. 
Skeetle-The-Beetle has a magic backpack that rattles when it has something
important in it.  The outlandish whims of Queeny-The-Mouse send Skeetle and
Duke on a scary adventure to The Black Mud Swamp to fetch a ruby for her
tiara.  Hezzra-The-Centipede is Duke's enemy.  He crawls on the ceiling of the
dungeon and pricks Duke's feet as he takes orders from Queeny.  When Skeetle
and Duke get to The Black Mud Swamp, they find a group of bullfrogs who play
Tic, Tac, Toe on the lily pads all day long.  Skeetle and Duke must solve a riddle
before Babble-The-Bullfrog will tell them how to get to The Ruby Chamber.  The
Ruby is guarded by Winter-The-Black-Widow-Spider.  The Ruby has an evil
power that almost destroys everyone in The United Acres of Sassafras.

             Book II: "The Book of Nice" is based on

                           “The Golden Rule.”

                Sticks and stones will break my bones,

                          but words will break my heart. 

     Hezzra-The-Centipede regains his sight from the evil Ruby.  The Ruby gives him
firesight too.  Skeetle-The-Beetle is rescued from a deep hole by Mother 'Possum. 
Skeetle, Duke, and Hezzra have a final battle in the Crystal Cave where Hezzra almost
dies.  Queeny puts Witch Hazel leaves on Hezzra's wounds.  Grandfather Beetle gets
lost, and ends up in Tal-wee Territory where he is put in prison by the mean, greedy
Tal-wees.  Grandfather escapes.  After Christmas, rain floods The United Acres of
Sassafras.  Then snow and ice cover everything.  Mrs. Persnickety Fox tells Red-tailed
Hawk to steal Skeetle's magic backpack so she can escape. Inside the backpack is
"The Book of Nice."  The Tal-wees plan to invade the U.A.S. on killer bees.  Two
Tal-wees change from mean to nice.  Ms. Persnickety Fox tries to be nice.  The magic
backpack and "The Book of Nice" save The United Acres of Sassafras on Earth Day. 
Praecher, the spirit of peace, blesses The United Acres of Sassafras.

I am Kate Brown.  I live in the woods near Monteagle, Tennessee, where the
wonders of nature inspire me to create these magical Sassafras Tales.  The
stories are full of fun and adventure that always end up with the characters doing the right thing.  Even though some of the characters are greedy, selfish, and mean,
kindness prevails.  Skeetle-The-Beetle, Duke-The-Chameleon,
Queeny-The-Mouse, Hezzra-The-Centipede, Winter-The-Black-Widow-Spider,
Ms. Persnickety Fox, even Tal-wees learn lessons of kindness.

I hope you enjoy Sassafras Tales.
