Winkie and his Woodland Friends
by Willy Schermele
Age Range: 6-8
Winkie loves to play his wooden flute and his music always helps him make lots of friends. But Winkie is in Pixieland and he’s not wearing a pixie hat so none of the animals dares to approach him. Brownie Bright-Eyes finds him sleeping alone under a tree and takes him home. Next day Bright-Eyes, who is also a hat maker, gives Winkie a blue hat so that all the other pixies and animals will now trust him.
The Winkie series of books were written and illustrated by Dutch artist Willy Shermele (1904-1995) and were originally published in Holland in the 1950s. There are a total of 12 titles in the series.
