Reviews for Beware the Deep Dark Forest

Beware the Deep Dark Forest captures just the right amount of creepiness with the rewarding inclusion of excitement and adventure and a strong female character determined to get her hands dirty and tackle the tough stuff. This is how you face your fears for children from age four. * Boomerang Books * White's illustrations are sumptuous and enhance the text; I particularly liked the double page spread where Rosie is twisting vines in readiness for her ravine crossing. * Sharon Greenaway Reviews * This is one of those wondrous books that will excite the imagination of daring children. * Kids' Book Review * Readers will follow the paths of the vines on the endpapers, again, alluding to Sleeping Beauty, or Beauty and the Beast, encouraging them to recall other folk tales they have heard. A wonderful read aloud, Beware of the deep dark forest will be read over and over by everyone who sees it. * ReadPlus *
