So, welcome to Little Herbs' stories....

Here is the WHOLE of Tommy Rub and the Search for Fulfilment.

It was another sunny day on Apple Island, home of #LittleHerbs fine pure skincare for mums, pre-mums and babes. To tell you the truth, it is always a sunny day on Apple Island, because on Apple Island it only ever rains after bedtime and before getting-up time. But who's this?

It's Tommy Rub, one of the #LittleHerbs. Tommy Rub is sitting under an apple tree, waiting for one to fall.

Some time passes in the sunshine. Tommy Rub, who's not in a hurry, is still waiting for an apple to fall. Bessy Balm, who's nice but bossy, wants to help.

Bessy asks Tommy why he's waiting. Tommy patiently explains the joy of anticipation and the thrill of deferred pleasure.

Bessy shakes the apple tree. Apples fall everywhere. There's your afters, she says - Apple Tumble! "But where's the custard?" asksTommy, who's nice but naughty, sometimes.

Custard? No problem! says Bessy, who's not easily put off. She whistles for Ginger, Apple Island's little dog.

Ginger runs up. Bobby Oil, Bertie Butter, Babby Balm and Soothing Sal, the other #LittleHerbs, arrive too. Ginger, orders Bessy, find custard!

Ginger twitches her nose and sets off, the #LittleHerbs following. Ginger runs round Apple Island 9 times, sniffing a lot.

Ginger stops. The #LittleHerbs fall down, panting hard, big word, exhausted. Ginger isn't. She starts to dig. She digs and digs. And digs. Then there's a gurgle...

Ginger's struck custard! She's 15 feet up on top of the yellow gusher...

WHAT HAPPENS NOW?! IS GINGER IN DANGER?! WILL A HERO ARISE?! HOW MUCH CUSTARD CAN A LITTLE HERB EAT?!
