Into The Forest

This book is a cleverly crafted tale designed to approach many natural childhood fears - forests and 'where's dad?' whilst interweaving familiar elements from traditional fairy stories.

When we pick up an Anthony Browne picture book in my book corner, we always know that time spent scanning each picture will be richly rewarded. The artwork from 'Into the Forest' is no exception.  On one page in particular we gained great delight from discovering hints of many fairy stories, all hidden in the magical forest.  The surreal aspect to Browne's creativity brings a breath of fresh air to illustrations for children's books, communicating how seriously he views his audience.

The main character of 'Into The Forest' wonders where his dad has gone, then on his way to visit Grandma, ignores his mum's advise and takes the short cut through the forest. Told in the first person, our main character meets a range of characters on his journey, all in contrasting black and white,and they all bare striking similarities to some rather familiar fairy story characters!

Beautifully large, colourful images accompany the text announcing that all is fine; grandma is better, dad has has been looking after her all this time ... no big bad wolves in this forest!

Intriguing Read

A very interesting book with detailed illustrations and a unique storyline. It's different, but one that you got to read, at least once!
