Granny Root is a unique character, full of contrasts. She is timeless, though she looks like she’s getting on in years. She sometimes uses a cane, yet she can travel back and forth easily through distant past lives. Granny Root lives in the woods under the roots of an old oak tree, yet she has also lived among the stars. Granny claims to have once been a crow, a mouse, a turtle, and a tree. She has conversations with stones to find out just what you need to know, and she can sing spiders to sleep. I have even seen her call the wind and redirect the rain. Though she says that mostly, we need to let Mother Earth do what She thinks is best with the weather.
Most of all, Granny Root loves to tell stories. She can tell them for hours and hours. So, be mindful, if you ask her to tell you a story, make sure you have enough time to hear it. She has a unique way of sharing the hidden truths of the world, so her stories are truly for children of all ages. The ones she has shared most recently are in this little book, along with some wisdom she had written on trees in the woods for me to find.
