"Sassafras Tales" In Book I, "The United Acres of Sassafras," Duke-The-Chameleon is dropped on the lawn of Queeny's Limestone Palace by a goldfinch on migration. Duke-The-Chameleon changes colors according to his surroundings and emotions. When Duke is sad, he goes to his crying rock, turns blue, and plays his harmonica. He turns bright red when he is agitated or angry. Skeetle-The-Beetle has a magic backpack that rattles when it has something important in it. The outlandish whims of Queeny-The-Mouse send Skeetle and Duke on a scary adventure to The Black Mud Swamp to fetch a ruby for her tiara. Hezzra-The-Centipede is Duke's enemy. He crawls on the ceiling of the dungeon and pricks Duke's feet as he takes orders from the queen. When Skeetle and Duke get to The Black Mud Swamp, they find a group of bullfrogs who play Tic, Tac, Toe on the lily pads all day long. Skeetle and Duke must solve a riddle before Babble-The-Bullfrog will tell them how to get to The Ruby Chamber. The Ruby is guarded by Winter-The-Black-Widow-Spider. The Ruby has an evil power that almost destroys everyone in The United Acres of Sassafras.

About Professor of History Kate Brown

I am Kate Brown, the writer. I live in the woods of Tennessee, where the wonders of nature inspire me to create these magical Sassafras Tales. The stories are full of fun and adventure that always end up with the characters doing the right thing. Even though some of the characters are greedy, selfish, and mean, kindness prevails. Skeetle-The-Beetle, Duke-The-Chameleon, Queeny-The-Mouse, Hezzra-The-Centipede, and Winter-The-Black-Widow learn the value of forgiveness and kindness.
