Late one night in the tiny village of Wiggle Twig a baby bumble tum was born. She had a pretty round face, a cute little cherub nose and a petal shaped mouth. Her long sensitive fingers were soft and bendy. When she kicked her chubby little legs at the air above her crib, her father crinkled his nose and smiled to himself. Then he picked her up and after blowing a long tickling raspberry on her striped tummy he proudly said,
"I will call her Cherry Petals"
All bumble tums have striped tummies, and just like bumble bees their stripes are usually black and yellow. It is where these little bumble tums get their name from. Most of them have straight black hair which grows up into a hook on top of their head. Some of them have blue eyes, Cherry Petals was born with the most beautiful violet blue eyes her father had ever seen.
The village of Wiggle Twig snuggles into an open meadow close up to the edge of a great timeless forest. It is a very difficult place to find unless you know exactly which signs to look for. Some people who have been looking for Wiggle Twig Village their whole lives have never found it. This is because the village is grown into the thickets surrounding the old forest and also because it is a very small village.
Bumble tums are tree keepers, they work in the great forest helping to keep the trees healthy and well cared for. In return the trees allow the bumble tums to feed on their favourite food, honey sap. Honey sap is sweet tasting, rich and full of goodness, and the bumble tums will do almost anything for it. Now it must be said that the trees are not unhappy about the bumble tums eating their sap, indeed they actually enjoy it when they do take some. The bumble tums use their long sensitive fingers to let the tree know where to send the sweet tasting juice. Then they nibble very gently until the tree begins to shake. It makes the tree shake when the bumble tums nibble at their bark because it tickles them. The tree shakes from the top most leaves down to its roots in the ground. It shakes and shakes until the honey sap flows and the bumble tums have had their fill.
