Heather's books have received many prestigious awards including the Children's Choice Award, Parent's Choice Award, CCBC Choices, ABC Best Books for Children, Best Children's Books of the Year, Book Sense Winter Children's Picks, and the National Parenting Publication Awards (NAPPA) among others. Heather is currently working on her tenth book with August House, a collection of ancient and epic tales. Ms. Forest holds a Master's Degree in Storytelling and she is a recipient of the Circle of Excellence Award presented by the National Storytelling Network.

Gr 3-6‘A collection of 27 folktales from around the world, each of which has a vein of magic that will delight both readers and listeners. Forest has retold each story in the "...minstrel performance style of storytelling [that] interweaves original poetry, guitar, and the sung and spoken word." Phrasing and imagery are consistently vivid, making these tales excellent candidates for storytelling as well as good read-alouds. The book's design is uncluttered and pleasing, with large pages and print and wide margins. An effective, full-page black-and-white drawing enhances each selection. All in all, a fine addition to most folklore collections.‘Lee Bock, Brown County Public Libraries, Green Bay, WI
