The Tales of Willowdean Forest - Short Stories

By William D Batts

Short stories, Young adult, Children's | Paperback, eBook


A land covered almost seamlessly by a canopy of ancient forest is the setting for the arrival of man. When his first stricken vessel nudged the shore it was to mark the beginning of change for the forest and the mythical inhabitants therein. For here dwells the stuff of legend, where fantasy and myth collide with the tangible world. Where, Witches, dragons, elves, goblins and many others have a voice, a story to share. Donsey, sorry, George, the simple, friendly and loveable scarecrow becomes embroiled with dark deeds of the forest. Soon he finds himself out of his depth. But with his old friend Owl and along with some new ones, will finding the truth lead to the salvation of the forest or will the scarecrow finally snap from this burden. So, go grab yourself a coat and pull on your wellies for it can get pretty sticky where we’re going.

As a child, I lived on the outskirts of Hastings, East Sussex., England. I spent a great deal of my time paddling around in streams, fishing for monsters in the local pond, or climbing to the top of the highest tree in the forest. Basically I loved to roam and explore the countryside. The one constant I still enjoy to this day, only now it’s my companions, Jet and Ozzy, my two black Labradors who are doing the splashing. It’s also been a good long while since I climbed any trees. I moved to the town after I married in 1987. By the time I was 33 our family was compete following the arrival of our third child. My story writing began back in the nineties, just as a bit of fun, for my three, then young, daughters. Inspiration to write my first story came after watching my girls playing with their pet rabbits, Genie and Fluffy. I re-named the bunnies Milly and Molly, the plot was about them being "rabbit knapped" from their cage one night. After a succession of fur quivering incidents they finally escaped to the forest where they were taken in by their, wild, cousins.
