Beware the Deep, Dark Forest
Published: 2018 by Walker Books
Level: Early Years (R-2)
A fun story with the elements of a traditional tale but with a modern feel. The brave main character Rosie goes into the deep, dark, muddy forest to rescue her little dog Tinky. She survives carnivorous plants, a venomous snake, a bristly wolf, a dangerously dreadfully deep ravine as well as a menacing monstrous muddy troll and returns past them all as well. Illustrations by Annie White are soft rainbow watercolours.
