Tatatuck’s Journey to Crystal Mountain

Little Tatatuck is a root pulling gnome who dreams of working in the crystal caves. But he is small and weak and so is told by the head crystal gnome that he must journey over seven mountains to the highest crystal cave on Crystal Mountain and bring a crystal back home from there to prove he can handle work in the crystal cave. Many have gone but none have returned. But that doesn’t discourage Tatatuck

Tatatuck travels over the seven mountains and meets one adventure after the other in trying to get to Crystal Mountain. He gathers treasures and friends along the way, faces many hazards, and becomes strong just through the journey before he even arrives at the destination. As he draws nearer and nearer to Crystal Mountain, what will Tatatuck do now that he has grown in strength—and wisdom! 

This is a delightful tale masterfully told by Jakob Streit, teacher and story teller extraordinaire!
