Twinkle and Chubbins; Their Astonishing Adventures in Nature-Fairyland
Twinkle is a little girl who often finds herself caught up in fantastic adventures. Whether it be being put on trial by angry woodchucks, raising a hateful baby crow, visiting a town full of talking prairie dogs, finding magical turtles, meeting strange creatures, or stumbling upon a country of sugar people, she never knows what she'll encounter next!
First published as a series of six short chapter books in 1905 under the pen name Laura Bancroft, Frank L. Baum's The Twinkle Tales were collected into one collection titled Twinkle and Chubbins; Their Astonishing Adventures in Nature-Fairyland in 1911. The title is a misnomer, as Chubbins (Twinkle's friend) appears in only two stories and few are set in "Nature-Fairyland." Policeman Bluejay, the sequel to these stories, was published in 1907. - Summary by Mary Kay and Wikipedia
