Ahhhhh this is so freaking cute! Thank you so much to the team at Willow Tree Books for having me on this blog tour, and for sending me a copy of this cute book. I’ll share the schedule towards the bottom and hopefully you’ll get to see some of the other posts for this tour!
In Willow Tree Wood, there’s magic everywhere if you know where to look!
Each time Molly and Tom visit Willow Tree Wood to stay with Grandma, they find themselves in adventures beyond their wildest dreams. Ideal for emerging readers, with engaging characters, cute animals and magical creatures. Featuring a fill-in book review.
In Little Deer and the Dragon, Molly and Tom discover a baby deer left all on its own. With the help of a small dragon, a magic potion and a special wish, will the Willow Tree Wood magic be strong enough to save the day?

This was such a cute and interesting little book. At first I didn’t know how the Little Deer or the Dragon were going to play out in this novel, but it definitely did in the end.
So this novel was about Molly and her brother Tom visiting their Grandma, who happens to live pretty close to Willow Tree Wood. There’s a dude that actually lives deep enough in the Wood that the mailman can’t drop off his mail so Grandma makes sure that Molly and Tom go give it to him. That’s pretty deep in the Wood, and I’m curious to know about the logistics of where he gets his groceries and clothes and stuff.
But anyway, Molly and Tom come across a little fawn near their grandma’s house that seems to be waiting for it’s mother to come back to it. Then they also come across a dragon that also lives in the Wood that never had a name before. The dragon was over two hundred years old and nobody ever gave the little dude a name? Broke my heart when I first read that.
I’m curious to see what other kind of magic is in the Wood, and the other creatures besides a dragon that live there. I also wonder if Grandma knows about the magic that surrounds her, and if she just plays pretend so that Molly and Tom can have some little secrets of their own during their visit.
