L. Frank Baum

Twinkle and Chubbins is a collection of short children's stories written by L. Frank Baum, but published under the pen name Laura Bancroft. The stories included in the collection are: Mr. Woodchuck, Bandit Jim Crow, Prairie-Dog Town, Prince Mud-Turtle, Twinkle's Enchantment, and Sugar-Loaf Mountain. "Mr. Woodchuck" involves Twinkle discovering the cruelty of animal traps, which her father has set in order to catch a woodchuck living on their property. She has a dream involving the woodchuck's family who show her the truth of what her father is doing. "Bandit Jim Crow" tells the story of a baby crow that Twinkle takes in as a a pet that turns out to be a mean and villainous bird. After he is nursed back to health, he begins tormenting all the birds in the area until Policeman Bluejay has to intervene. "Prairie-Dog Town" sees Twinkle and her friend Chubbins go on a magical adventure into the underground village of the prairie dogs, once they have been shrunken down to the same size as the dogs themselves! In "Prince Mud-Turtle," Twinkle discovers a strangely-colored turtle which she brings back home with her. Twinkle then learns that the turtle is actually a prince who has been turned into a turtle by an evil giant and goes on an adventure to restore the turtle-prince to his human form. "Twinkle's Enchantment" involves Twinkle's adventure when she enters into a gulch to pick berries and meets several proverb-based creatures, such as a Rolling Stone That Gathers No Moss and the Birds of One Feather, among others. "Sugar-Loaf Mountain" follows the adventure that Twinkle and Chubbins go on after finding a trap door that leads them to Sugar-Loaf Mountain. Sugar-Loaf mountain, as they discover, is populated by people made of sugar. They meet the king, who takes them around the city to explore and meet the townspeople.
