This is the second by Jessice Roux that I’ve been fortunate enough to read advance copies of. Her artwork is beyond gorgeous and I’ve had a wonderful time reading both.
The cover and description both piqued my interest. The book itself kept my interest and then some. The charming, Victorian-vibe illustrations are just the icing in this wonderfully divine cake of a guide book and oracle deck and I’m planning on ordering this soon. My teens approved of this deck as well.

Drawing on mythology, folklore, and literature, each card in the Woodland Wardens deck features an animal-plant pairing accompanied by a distinct and thoughtful message: the hare and the oak; the finch and the peach; the hawk and the thistle. Each unique combination, brought to life in artist Jessica Roux’s detailed, historically evocative style, transports seekers to another time and place, offering insight, guidance, and an invitation to reflect on the natural world.
