Crabapple Tales

Welcome to Crabapple Tales. I created the website to share the story books I’ve been writing and illustrating. My children and grandchildren have inspired me to finally write the stories that I have been thinking about for most of my life. I am thoroughly enjoying entertaining the 4-8 year old crowd with my tales.

All of my books can be seen on My Books page and are available in a large, colorful, 8.5 x 11 magazine format or as an ebook on

To hear some of my books read aloud, check out my Books Read Aloud page or visit my YouTube channel at:
My YouTube Channel
Or just search YouTube for Peggy Recchia

I’ll keep you posted on new releases as well as any related information on existing books.

Don’t forget to check out my Activities page where you’ll find bookmarks, coloring book pages and a corn maze that you can download and print.
