Events in the Series (spoilery area) Edit

“Big City Littles" in Tapping the Dream Tree: Children's author, Sheri Piper, awoke one morning to a little man sitting on her pillow. She knew what he was since she wrote a children's story book about Littles. She just never expected them to be real. Rather than being alarmed, she felt calm. She agreed to help him and his clan to find out how to become birds again but declined their last wish that he offered her as a reward—believing that people should earn what they get and magic wishes were creepy, not to be trusted. Jenky knew then that they sought out the right person. Sheri sets about the task of helping with the help of Meran Kelledy. ~ "Big City Littles"


   "I Just don't like the idea of magic wishes. There's something creepy about them. I think we should earn what we get, not have it handed to us on a silver platter."
   That earned her a warm smile.
   "I think we definitely chose the right person to help us," he said. —— Sheri Piper, Jenky Wood
