It is Midsummer's Eve. Blossom, the Royal Dressmaker, and her assistants Nightwing, Fancy, Trip, and Pod are hard at work making the Fairy Queen's new dress for the Midsummer Ball. To pass the time, they take turns telling stories, stories no human child has heard before:
"The Seahorse and the Kelpie King"
"When I was a Tooth Fairy"
"Princess Curly Long Locks"
"The Shoemaker and the Robber Elves"
"One Pumpkin, Five Dears and Three Good Wishes"
