Deep in the roots of an old pine tree live the children of the forest. Playing hide-and-seek with the squirrels, snow-balling in winter, each season brings its own adventures, but perhaps spring holds the best surprise of all.

Colour illustrated.

Industry Reviews

The miniscule forest world - and the pictorial milieu - is that of When the Root Children Woke Up but whereas the Olfers has a spare narrative to offset the embrace of Mother Nature, this has verse after quaint cloying verse:"With fat and croaking bullfrogs they play beside the pond.The biggest one's a friend of baby brother Tom;When Teem gets a spanking or hurts his foot or hand,The nice wet frog consoles him, and soon again he's calm.""They" are of course the children of the forest, less tomten-like than elfin, and it's only the most complaisant child who'll sit unsquirming through their frolics, however winsomely pretty the pictures. - (Kirkus Reviews)
