Into the Forest by Anthony Browne

Anthony Browne toys with our knowledge of the fairy-tales to create suspense with each turn of the page, black and white images of the familiar characters make them seem lost and haunted in their own narrative. What will happen to little boy as he ventures deeper into the forest? The story has a clever and unexpected resolution.

It’s an excellent example of a picture book that encourages children to consider meaning and symbolism within image and text.

As always with Anthony Browne, the illustrations are magnificent.
