Author Grant M. Handgisabout this book: The Story of Teeny Tiny Tammy is a fairytale for young girls who love stories with Fairies and Gnomes, and a troublesome Troll, all of whom reside in a magical place known as the Contrariest Forest. Teeny Tiny Tammy is but six inches tall, who's mother was swept away by the North Wind when she was young, leaving her to care for her woodcutter father and little brother, in the land of Montanari. "Tucked away in a tall fern patch, by a very small stream, stood a sturdy little house made of foxtail stocks and sugar bark. The roof was fashioned from feathers of birds, and spider's thread, and of course a song to do the weaving."
Tammy yearns to know the secret of how a girl becomes a woman, and sets off on her quest to find the magic Golden Rod in the fabled forest, with its legendary Tiptinary dancing fairies, believing its magic would transform her. Tammy meets three women on her quest to find the magical solution to womanhood, each providing assistance, and comradery along the way. Her new friends become her cloister of women, and Tammy comes to learn through their support and council that the qualities of becoming a woman have nothing to do with a Golden Rod nor magic, but through the qualities in the girl.


• "As an avid reader of children's books, I almost never find books that are filled with details and colorful language such as this one. I highly recommend this book to those that love beautiful illustrations, colorful language, and timeless folklore."

• "The watercolor illustrations of Christina Mach-Handgis that grace every page are stunning—vibrant and magical pieces of art in and of themselves. The combination of beautiful words and images makes this a book ideal for young girls and their parents."
