Fantasy magazine for children 8-12. Packed with artwork, poetry, stories and articles about all manner of fae creatures found in the woods. Includes a recommended reading list so the fun can continue once you've finished with the issue. More
They say that the woods are a dangerous place. Bogles lie in wait for unsuspecting travelers. Kelpies prance just off the path, offering rides that come to a watery end. Fairy rings, carnivorous plants, trolls … the list of creatures that intend harm is unending.
Forests dark and deep have another side, of course. Wise women and men live among the trees. Dryads and fauns roam the meadows and glens. Healing springs, magical swords stuck in stones, sleeping princesses and wishing wells all reside among the brambles.
The trick, it seems, is to pick your path carefully. And it helps to have a guide. Take along this issue of Spellbound as a handy reference guide as to what to expect when you’re traversing the woodlands. Packed with artwork, poetry, stories and articles, Creatures of the Deep, Dark Woods should prove an invaluable aid in surviving your trip.
