9781470030018: Eggs for the Hunting: starring Pine Cone and Pepper Pot and the illimitable Tiptoes Lightly

Spring is full of life and life is full of eggs, all sorts of eggs: great cosmic eggs and tiny butterfly eggs, salmon eggs and bird eggs, rabbit eggs and special eggs being gilded and painted by two gnomes called Pine Cone and Pepper Pot. They have been told (gossiped!) that Farmer John's children, Tom and June, are going to give them special eggs for Easter, and they decide to reciprocate. However, if you are a gnome, a small gnome--even if you are two small gnomes--then the simplest of tasks (such as finding a bird who does not mind giving you a couple of their eggs) can be a problem, a big problem!Woven into the fabric of the book are many tales and legends: Pepper Pot reads the history of King Karnac and the Turning of Time, Madam Two-Pecks tells her chicks how the universe was created from the World Egg, the Wise Salmon in Running River tells of the great cycle of life, and yes, at the end the super-magical Easter Bunny slyly appears and leaves the most wonderful egg of all!Eggs for the Hunting is a spring tale, a wonder tale, affirming the joy, humor and mystery of life.

About the Author:

Reg Down grew up in Canada, Namibia, South Africa and Ireland. He trained as a eurythmist, an art of movement and gesture, in England and Germany. The father of three, he has taught eurythmy in Waldorf schools in Australia, Canada and the United States. Many of his children's books arose out of his work with kindergarten and the younger grades. He is also the author of Leaving Room for the Angels, a book on eurythmy and artistic pedagogy, Color and Gesture--the Inner Life of Color, and a novel, The Fetching of Spring. He lives in Auburn, California.

Review:

"If you aren't a Tiptoes fan yet, Eggs for the Hunting, the seventh book in the Tiptoes Tales, is a great place to start. It's a wonderful book for young children, highly imaginative and utterly entertaining." Waldorf Today

"'Eggs for the Hunting' is an entertaining twist for younger readers, very much recommended." Midwest Book Review
