About the Stories
Every year, during the long nights of December, the Candleberry elf makes candles in his fairy chandlery. Every year he waits for the old man and woman of the farmhouse to light their candles, signaling the beginning of the festival of lights. One year, however, they do not light their candles – and the Candleberry elf looks to find out why.
Gibb is a sensitive wild turkey. He notices things that other turkeys don't – things that would be helpful to the flock – but Gibb is afraid of the attention it might bring. The whispers of a watchful brownie help him find the courage and confidence to lead the flock to a source of food for the winter.

With the help of the crystal gnome that crafted the stone, the whole family discovers the secret to making wishes come true!
