This is one of those story's that instantly makes you nostalgic for the fun, imaginative stories you read yourself as a child. It had very vivid descriptions and the main character is just adorable with his stubborn, determined objective. The open ending, I hope, suggests at more to follow as I'd love to see more of Newert the Erbit.
I'd recommend this to those looking for a simple and sweet bedtime story for kids and if my niece and nephew are anything to go by they should love it. Could easily appeal to ages 4-10 (and even me *lol* as a 29yr bedtime reader).

Newert the Erbit lives in Windlier Woods, and must fulfill a promise he made to his master to bring the magic back. His master died hundreds of years ago, but Newert was given a job to search for this magic in other realms, steal it, and bring it back home. If not, Newert believes Windlier Woods will fade away.

The story is warm, and exciting to experience what our modern world looks like through the eyes of this charming little character. The author, N. R. Williams, is an extremely talented, imaginative, and colorful author. All children will fall in love with Newert, and their parents will enjoy watching their excitement.

The Magic of Windlier Woods is a little book that should be in all children's libraries.

The concept had potential, but I didn't feel like the plot really went anywhere. Newert, some sort of magical woodland creature, is trying to stop the slow decline of magic in his land. His quest begins at a portal to another land where he believes the solution to his problem lies. He succeeds in opening the door, but then almost immediately returns. I don't see any correlation between what it is I think he brought back and the solution he's after, and as a matter of fact it's not even addressed. It reads like a hook to get me to buy the "real" book, but I have yet to find a part two. I'm confused as this really doesn't seem to work as a stand alone story.

Overall, the story is whimsical and a great opportunity to teach kids about the power of imagination (with unheard-of creatures and an imaginary world). After I read it to my son, I asked him what he thought the world was shaped like and other questions to get him thinking. IMO, kids are too practical these days. TV shows you everything, and so do video games. Even LEGO sets come with instructions (which I immediately toss!)! Original thought is a vanishing concept. Kids don't read as much as they used to, and that leads to them being less creative in other aspects of their lives - again, just IMO. So I give kudos to this and any other author who can create a story that's almost entirely make-believe and keep it fun and short enough to compete with today's vanishing attention spans. That's star #1.

I've never heard of these creatures before now, the writing itself is very good, and the world is creative and original. For those 3 things, I gave the other 3 stars.

The missing star is because the world itself could be improved upon. It seems rather small and dull to be the realm of magical creatures. Also, we aren't told enough about life in this world. Do other beings live in the forest? What kinds of creatures does Norbert protect against? What's beyond the borders of this small forest? Interaction/dialogue with other characters would help as well. All we're really given are Newert's actions, Newert's thoughts, Newert's job, Newert's circumstances. A little variety could enrich the story tremendously, I think.

It was really short and I didn't really understand most of it. It was like if there was a book before this one that you had to read to understand it.

This was a very entertaining book, but it is not really aimed at an adult audience. The characters are endearing and the simple plot easy to follow

The Magic of Windlier Woods is the story of Newert the erbit's grand aventure to save his world's failing magic. The story left me giggling and smiling throughout the short approximately 20 minute read. Sold as a children's book, it is an entertaining story for readers of all ages who enjoy humor, misadventure, and fantastical creatures. The only thing that would have made this book more intriguing is to add pictures to with the vivid imagery of the world, and especially Newert.
