Rootabaga Stories

Rootabaga Stories

Welcome to Rootabaga Country—where the railroad tracks go from straight to zigzag, where the pigs wear bibs, and where the Village of Cream Puffs floats in the wind. You'll meet baby balloon pickers, flummywisters, corn fairies, and blue foxes—and if you're not careful, you may never find your way back home!

This part one of the Rootabaga Stories retains the original illustrations by Maud and Miska Petersham.
