Weekly Game - Care of Magical Creatures

This lovely rhyme riddle is brought to you by Nandhini @Books_under_moonlight   Care of Magical Creatures   1) Small we may well be, We are tree dwellers you see As sentinels we stand for our tree If there is a want for your wand, pay our fee or flee Do you have wood lice or fairy eggs?
