Book Description

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
