an extraordinary book, which will enhance children's visual literacy and encourage them to bring their own knowledge of fairytales to the story. * Springboard Stories * With each page, our expectations of what will happen shift, as Browne plays with readers' knowledge of the fairy-tale source to set up suspense, before a happy resolution. . . Like so much of Browne's work, this book encourages children to look attentively and think about motives and meanings. -- Nicolette Jones * The Sunday Times *
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.See all Product description

This book is really clever - the pictures in the forest are rich in detail and great for little minds to explore. To really understand the fairy tale references, the child you're buying this for will need to be aware of fairy tale stories like Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Hansel and Gretel etc - it's a fantastic book that encourages discussion and sharing of ideas. Any literature that is enjoyable to read and gets young children thinking in this kind of multi-layered way is going to get a high rating from me!
