The Fairy Tale Project Trilogy…
Follow Will, a city boy, on a magical adventure that begins when he visits his Grandpa Otus in the small country town of Astrophyllite. The two of them travel together through a magic forest where they meet some delightful and some downright frightening creatures that teach them patience, to take time and enjoy life, and also give them the opportunity to face their fears, something they discover they are capable of through the power of love.
After journeying through one realm after another in this mystical world, they make their way back home with a renewed appreciation for life, and for Grandpa Otus, an understanding of the need to honor his inner child and give him the attention he deserves… which in turn, makes for a stronger, happier adult.
Part 1: Will and the Magical Forest
As a young boy, Grandpa Otus had a frightening experience in the magical forest and warned his grandson Will never to go near the dark, wooded area. But Will, upon being distracted by a playful frog, followed it directly into the forbidden forest. Forgetting his own fear, Grandpa ran right in to catch up with Will and right through an unseen portal, finding himself transformed into a young boy once again. Our travelers encounter the dreadful bophants and the giant Namura, who gives them a spell to awaken the Sphinx with the hope that he will show them the way home.
Part 2: Will and the River of Enchantment
Will and Grandpa Otus meet some delightful creatures including fairies, gnomes, an enchanted unicorn and more along the River of Enchantment including Thiesel the Alligator, as they continue on their journey in search of the Sphinx.
Part 3: Will and the Crystal Fairy
After journeying through one realm after another in this magical, mystical world, Will and Grandpa Otus find themselves in the very peculiar cave of the Sphinx as they attempt to answer his riddle in order to make their way back home. They meet a number of fanciful characters including the wise and beautiful Crystal Fairy on this memorable journey.
