Five stories originally published in England, centering around Be-wee, the little bee-gnome. " 'I believe the Crow-Bat was joking,' " said Wee Careful Toad. But the Tousle Bush said nothing." The writing is in the style of the 20's, with imaginative touches. Govey's fine illustrations, beautiful clear watercolours, give an intimate glimpse into the little gnome's days and bring these stories to life. The publisher reissued this book in 1923 with the 20 plates as "The Creepie-Man and Other Stories".
