Willard's Call For Help
ISBN: 1413752217

PublishAmerica. 2005

This is another adventure with Willard and his friend, Tim. Willard was a little boy who had been changed into a blue, stuffed, toy elephant by a sorcerer. Although he had magical powers, he couldn't change himself back into a boy. He had floated around in the ocean for hundreds of years, when he floated upon a beach, where he was found by Tim. They became good friends and shared many adventures together, before Tim and his friends helped Willard return home and got the sorcerer to change him back into a boy. Now, Willard needs Tim and his friends' help to save his friend, Merlin, who is now a good sorcerer, from an evil sorcerer. They encounter a dragon who is guarding the evil sorcerer's castle. But Tim and his friends convince the dragon to help them in saving Merlin from the evil sorcerer. They do, but the evil sorcerer escapes, and now they have to catch him.
