Into The Forest
by Anthony Browne
A shortcut through the forest to Grandma's house produces some eerie moments ??and some oddly familiar characters ??in a strikingly illustrated tale about facing fears.
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??┤ seem to know when he??▍l be back. The next day Mum asks her son to take a cake to his sick grandma. "Don??┤ 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.
