In the first book the queen of the fairies, Queen Silver-Bell, loses her "temper" (which most people do not know is really a fairy) and becomes known from then on as Queen Crosspatch. She knows that she will never find her temper again until she has done something that would make people–-particularly children–-believe in fairies as they used to "once upon a time," so she decides to get a "respectable" person to write the stories down as she tells them. The subsequent stories in the series all have the subtitle "As Told By Queen Crosspatch."
The first book, Queen Silver-Bell, also contains the story "How Winnie Hatched The Little Rooks."
