Staff Reviews


The gorgeous book for all ages is more than an adventure through a forest. The lush illustrations play with negative space; some of the elements rise up from the page adding a tactile dimension to the book. Part meditation, part expedition, this book contains more than meets the eye.


— From The Forest


A book about the journey of life, from our wide-eyes of childhood through the tangles and brambles, into our end.
