The Charmers Legend: Legend has it that one day, while walking through the forest, Gulliver, a very large Woodspirit and Harvey, his rabbit friend, spotted a colorful charm bracelet nestled among the clover. Suddenly each charm began to move, as if the bracelet had come to life! "What's that Harvey?" said Gulliver.`"Is it a bracelet ... or ...?" Harvey leapt three feet up into the air for a quick look. "My stars, I think it's a group of little people and little animals playing in that clump of clover!" replied Harvey. Gulliver and Harvey carefully crept forward and. Now they could clearly see that it was not a bracelet of tiny charms, but rather a gathering of tiny Gnomes and tiny forest animals. The wee creatures were frolicking and laughing as they played one of their favorite games -- Find the Four Leaf Clover. But when they heard Gulliver and Harvey approach, they scampered into the tall grass to hide. "Why, those are little, live charms -- smaller than my hat!" exclaimed Gulliver. "Or my rabbit's foot!" agreed Harvey.`"I've never before seen people and animals so small ... or so charming!" From then on, each time they'd spot another little creature, they would whisper, "There's a Charmer!" and then Gulliver and Harvey would bend down to see if one of the little Charmers had indeed found a four-leaf clover.
