Tales of the Forgotten Forest Vol. 1: The Purple Tree
The Purple Tree (book one of Tales of the Forgotten Forest) began as a bedtime story I made up for my two children when they were younger, told every night before they went to sleep. It is about two boys who get lost in the woods and discover an ancient tree which possesses magical properties. Children from their village have also been taken away at night, and no one can figure out why or where they have gone. The boys discover a guide in the form of an old man in their village, and eventually embark on a journey which unravels the mystery of the missing children and the strange tree they found.
