Quimble Wood (1981), also by Bodecker, illus. by Branka Starr, tells of four quimbles who live in a box, ""each wearing a tall, pointed hat, and each no bigger than your little finger."" The adventures of these elfin characters, their diminutive stature brought to life in Starr's gently humorous half-tone illustrations, will enchant readers. .
