Published In: United Kingdom, 05 September 2005
An atmospheric exploration of a child's anxiety by the 2000 Hans Christian Andersen Medal Winner. 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't seem to know when he'll be back. The next day Mum asks her son to take a cake to his sick grandma. "Don't 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 and discovers the fate of his father.

5 of 5 Stars! '

I have used this book with my 11/12 year olds in my classroom. The illustrative devices used are excellent. Intertextuality for the introduction of common fairytale characters. Vectors for the diagonal lines that draw the eye across the page. Third/two thirds proportions, colour saturation, metaphors, representations and so much more. We spent nearly a week going over and over it; finding more each time. It is also great to give children the proper tools to deconstruct/reconstruct illustrations and realise that great author/illustrators such as Anthony Browne don't just fill a page with random things without there being a reason or meaning behind it. Highly recommend it for all ages.
