Jeannie Baker's latest book contains dazzlingly realistic images. The illustrations in "Hidden Forest" are photographs of her gallery works that are 3-dimensional constructions, made up of a translucent collage of materials illuminated from behind in a light box. They are truly remarkable with their vividness and accuracy of representation. There is a strong environmental theme running through Jeannie's works. In this story it is the fragility of the marine environment that is the focus of the story.
Young Ben has to go diving in the Kelp Forest to learn about the beauty and special qualities of this underwater world.
This is a truly magnificent book. Look out for an exhibition of Jeannie's artworks if it tours near you.

My son aged nearly 3 picked this book out of the library and I thought it looked boringly earnest at first. Upon reading and re-reading it with him I find that it is really subtle & complex & can be read on many levels. A true piece of literature for this age group, not the usual pap - highly recommended.

We love jeannie baker books. This one has slightly less detail in the pictures than window and other books and has words which others don't but still fantastic collage illustrations. My five and seven year olds love her books.

Jeannie Bakers work is always stunning, original and thought provoking. The beautiful picures speak to all ages and hopefully may inspire young and old to look after our beautiful and fragile planet

This book would be very fine without any words at all, as the illustrations are truly beautiful, yet the story itself is also powerful and encompassing. A great read (and viewing)

Jeannie Baker's books are all fantastic and the themes of human impacvt on the environment provide a great start point for discussion with children.

A super book with beautiful pictures, I used it for a stimulus for children in year 3 to write a mystery story
