Summary

An unusual fairy tale for all ages. 
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 originally appeared in the online magazine Aurora Wolf, and its related anthology, Aurora in the Dawn in 2010. 
This is an updated version available in eBook format. 
Word Count: 5200 (Not including bonus first chapter of Secrets)
