A Tisket, A Tasket  by Grey Wonderer 24 Review(s)
Queen GaladrielReviewed Chapter: 1 on 9/1/2006
LOL! Too cute! I saw this on Marigolds recs and I just had to read it! Oh boy, the three older ones have got their hands full with that child! Poor Pippin, LOL! But so cute that Merry actually humoured him in the end, even though he was rather annoyed by it all. :) I can just imagine Frodo or Merry telling that story on Pippin years later! Great laugh, GW! Thanks!
God bless,

Author Reply: Thank you! This was my attempt at an Easter story last year. I wanted an Easter basket with a stuffed bunny and Easter grass and this was the only way I could manage it without a complete breach of canon. LOL (Not that I haven't been guilty of the sort of thing many times before.....) I am so pleased that you liked it. The year before on Easter I managed colored eggs and I have no idea what I will be able to do this year! Thank you so much for the lovely review.

This was just as delightful on second read as the first time! Your characterizations are just marvelous, especially wee Pippin. His childish logic is just so spot on of that age. Wise old Bilbo (what a great eldest cousin to have!), patient Frodo and sly, kind-hearted Merry. I always love your Errol stories; this one is especially sweet.

Author Reply: Thank you so much. I am glad that you enjoyed it again. It is always nice when someone lets me know that they enjoy a story enough to read a second time. Errol is thrilled as am I.

"Frodo sighed. Between Bilbo and Merry, Frodo wondered how Pippin would ever learn about the reality of life."

That had me laughing out loud :)

"Aminals" Ok, I have to admit - I didn't even notice until you mentioned it. *embarrassed blushing* Amazing how our brain will often insist on seeing things the way it expects them to be. Other times, things we know are right look wrong.

This was adorable and charming as usual, GW. I (and a good many others) do love your stories!

Author Reply: See that's one reason I just don't catch my own typos. They look fine to me just like the word aminal looked fine to you. hehehe

Glad this gave you a laugh. Thank you for the kind words. I love your stories too. In fact I am absolutely in love with your Diamond and Pippin story right now.

This is very cute! Your Pip is adorable (I think aminal is my new favorite word) and I love your Bilbo. Your Merry is a bit stern, but I love him too, all sense and bossy-ness. :) Thank you for this lovely fic!

Author Reply: I think that at fourteen, Merry is trying to appear completely grown up and act as if he doesn't have time for this sort of thing, but in the end, he is the one who puts the tiny bunny in Errol's basket. LOL
Glad you enjoyed this one and thanks for reading it!

This is absolutely adorable! I've always loved Errol and Pippin's 6-year old non-logic is priceless. Sweet of Merry to take care of the bunny problem, and Frodo's gentleness in dealing with his wee cousin so touching. And that Bilbo! With the patience of a saint and wise as any wizard with young hobbits. Thank you so much for this sweet chocolate covered bunny!

Author Reply: You are most welcome. Easter just seemed like the proper time for Errol to make a return appearance and so this was the result. He is my own personal plot bunny. LOL

Thanks for reading and reviewing!

The way Pippin says 'aminal' instead of 'animal' is just too cute!
"For some reason whenever Pippin whispered he was actually louder than if he had simply used his normal voice."
Hahaha...I wonder why it's like that with kids.
"Like the Bracegirdles!"
Too, too, too funny. You never fail to make me laugh. And Pippin is just too cute for his own good! Happy Easter, mate, and keep up the good work. :)

Author Reply: Little children always seem to whisper so loudly, don't they? I think they try too hard or something. Glad you enjoyed and hope you had a Happy Easter!

This was an adorable look at our favourite little Took. I love the fact that Pip is so thoughtful about things, Merry will do anything to help him, Frodo worries that Pip will live in a fantasy world forever and Bilbo is just.......Bilbo!

I had to giggle at Pip wondering if Eglantine built a nest in which to have him!

Lovely Easter story!

Author Reply: Thank you for the review and I am very glad that you enjoyed it. Little ones do have interesting views of things, don't they?

“This bed is safe for them. Merry and I sleep in it every time we’re here and neither of us has any babies so Errol should be fine.”

*snicker* So sweet. Thanks for the chuckle.

How sweet and funny! Very clever story, I like the idea that squirrels come out of trees when they are ripe!

Author Reply: For some reason that idea about the squirrels just struck me and it sounded like a small child. Glad you enjoyed it and thank you so much for reviewing!

What a wonderful story! So full of love and understanding and huggable Pippin.

Author Reply: Have to have a bit of huggable Pippin in every story! LOL Thank you for reading and I am pleased that you liked this one.
