This short but wacky collection of eighteen fairy tales by Peter Leithart is perfect for bedtime reading, each tale invoking the imagery, plots, and themes of the book of Proverbs.

Whether its the story of the fairies that live in walnuts or of the man who never got out of bed, these stories will make you laugh. Though you may be tempted to read deep theological meaning into each story, in reality they owe their origin to Peter Leithart telling his kids stories before bed. Perfect for the family.
