Into the Forest
Illustrated by Anthony Browne
One night a young boy is awoken by a terrible noise. The next day he finds his father has disappeared and his mother doesn't know when he's coming back.
When she gives the boy a food basket to take to his sick Grandma, he sets off on a magical journey through a fairytale past, meeting many familiar characters on the way, including a boy with a cow, a girl with golden hair, two abandoned children and a red coat hanging from a tree.
Finally, when he reaches Grandma’s cottage he finds an unusual surprise waiting for him! This is another fabulous title from the deservedly popular Anthony Browne, with each illustration cleverly signposting references to popular fairy tales.
