Magic, dragons and druids feature in a new book by an Ilfracombe author. Oliver Tooley has delved into the realm of the druids and their struggles with the Romans for his first full length novel. Children of the Wise Oak is the first in a series following the secretive Deru-Weidi (druids) of Celtic Britain and Gaul as they bid to prevent Rome destroying their way of life in the first century BC. The idea came from when Olivers sons all bought miniature dragon statues from a gift shop. He has also written a short story Time Tunnel to Londinium and three sequels, also available in paperback and Kindle. Children of the Wise Oak is available from Ilfracombe Bookshop, Walter Henrys Bookshop, Bideford and Tarka Books in Barnstaple, as well as all digital book formats and via Amazon.
