Natasha’s Wood and Twiglet’s First Birthday
On a very sunny day in a secret garden full of wild and wonderful flowers, a small seed pops up from under the ground. This tiny seed uncurls its first leaves and takes the shape of a small twig. Even though she is just a twig, and not very big, her heart is full of hope. Named Twiglet by her kangaroo, fairies, friendly water dragon, unicorns and emu friends – Twiglet pledges to catch children’s wishes.
“I may be small – but one day I’ll grow big - just you wait and see. And I’ll catch children’s wishes in leaves as big as dishes…”
Twiglet will grow up to be a majestic, enchanted tree. Her friends – tiny fairies, baby water dragons, emus, kangaroos and other magical creatures – will gather here in their home – Natasha’s Wood.
