Into the Forest
An atmospheric exploration of a child's anxiety by the 2000 Hans Christian Andersen Medal Winner.
One night a boy is woken by a terrible sound. A storm is breaking, lightning flashing across the sky. In the morning Dad is gone and Mum doesn t seem to know when he ll be back. The next day Mum asks her son to take a cake to his sick grandma. Don t go into the forest, she warns. Go the long way round. But, for the first time, the boy chooses to take the path into the forest, where he meets a variety of fairy tale characters and discovers the fate of his father.
"Into the Forest repays many readings. So little said but so much implied; that is the certain delight of Anthony Browne's picture books, a right feast for the imagination." Magpies Magazine
