A misfit nursery-worker stoically bears taunting from the younger fairies but when an unusual baby arrives, she refuses to stand aside.


Just because it’s always been that way doesn’t make it right.

Teased by the young fairies for her clumsiness and large feet, Tiptoe believes she’s a failure as a fairy. She’s confined to the nursery where only the babies can see her, and every time she leaves it, it’s all Tiptoe can do to avoid damaging the fairy village.

Then a special prince is added to her charges, and she starts to question what makes her so different.


When the Shoe Won’t Fit was originally published in 2010 in the online magazine Aurora Wolf, and its related anthology, Aurora in the Dawn.

The updated short story appears for the first time in eBook form.
