"There are four fairytale stories here, each twenty to thirty pages in length, and each presented in English with a Spanish translation on the facing page: "The Apothecary's Garden"; The Wizard"; Doña Stephana and the Dragon"; and "Trees of Gold and Silver." There are plenty of black-and-white full-page illustrations suitable for coloring. The back cover describes the stories as "simple parables told with careful attention to traditional and modern values." In her personal statement at the end of the book, Ross remembers the stories told by the nuns at St. Augustine's School in Los Angeles after lunch every day. World War II brought its own dark threats to Los Angeles, but what the nuns read were "stories that told of peaceful lands and gentle people." This book and its companion second volume were printed upon demand."
