About the Book

Fairy diddle is a local term used in the Appalachian Mountains for a small, nocturnal flying squirrel which is hard to see because it moves so fast and can become quite the pest if it takes up residence in the surroundings of a home. This term may have been applied to the hyperactive movements of small children which can also become annoying to the adults around them.
