Sensing a gap in the market, they started their own business selling scented artisanal firewood to local campgrounds, suffusing the logs with their unique fragrance blends. The orders for ‘Aromafire’ started pouring in. Each week, the twins sail down the creek in a canoe carved from white cedar, and deliver the bundles to the boat-launch. This week’s most popular scents are ‘Clarity: rose, sunlight, and wild honeysuckle’ and ‘Hygge: birdsong, orange blossom, and cinnamon bark.’ As you can imagine, they’re really quite dreamy. I’d recommend placing your order before they’re all gone!
During Tiny’s volunteer hours at the Library, Skye will often share tales of her thrilling life: the full-moon fishing parties, karaoke at the Salted Cod, and the hair-raising antics of the local gulls. But it was when she started to yawn during the dawn pelican dives, and snooze through the swim-meets, that she began to wonder if she wasn’t getting too old for this young heron’s game.
Skye found herself dreaming about meeting an eligible egret, and settling by a pond in the country, so when the pigeon-post brought Uncle Henry’s invitation, the timing could not have been better. She swopped her float and whistle for a book on the Bluey Decimal System, and now spends her days turtle-gazing by the lake with Tiny. It’s a quiet life, but Skye wouldn’t change a thing.
The Duckworth-Webbs are unstoppable. At least that’s the phrase Camilla used during her recent interview with the Treetops Tribune, much to the chagrin of middle sibling, Indigo, who has been finding a way to announce her departure from the team. It’s not that Indigo doesn’t enjoy the grueling hours of water ballet, or spending every waking moment with her bickering sisters. At first it was a hoot, but now it’s all a little too serious. Compared with competitive Camila and easy-to-please Pip, Indigo’s a laid-back duck, with one eye on the next adventure.
In truth, She’s been planning a trip with her dear friend Tiny to the infamous Silverbill Bay, where they’ll dine at the Lillypad Lounge, and laze on paddleboards at the new Aquacktics Center. But please keep it under your wing for now, at least until the Mermaid Cup is back on the family mantelpiece.
In truth, the squirrel boys have much to thank Tiny for. Not only did she build the sign to their exact specifications, “walnut ink shade #422 on the smoothest birch bark”, but she helped with their relocation from Old Man Guthrie’s oak tree, which they were fast outgrowing.
The squirrel boys have built up a loyal following in the forest community, and are best known for their zippity-quick cuts and razor sharp mullets. This season’s most popular styles are the Acorn-Cup and the Hickory Flick. If you’re tempted to get a fresh look, enjoy the latest gossip on the salon chair, and don’t be surprised if you turn a few heads.
Through her long and relatively happy life, figure-skating is a passion she has shared with her goslings, her grand-goslings, and even the residents of Treetops including her dear friend Tiny. Eager to try a new sport, Tiny enrolled in the Gosling Gliders program and took to it like a goose to water.
Gretchen loves nothing more than to teach the world about figure-skating, but she keeps one pleasure for herself—to slide across the lake at night with Mother-the-Moon as her guide—lost in her thoughts, dreaming about her days in Canada, and feeling the thrill of the wind in her wings.
