Winter has thawed and Spring has sprung! The forest is turning green again and no one is more excited to experience it than Mr Warthog and his brand new baby boy who gets to experience the great big outdoors for the very first time!
This new series paints a tender and colorful portrait of everyday Life, showing that behind every flaw or weakness can lie charm and strength. Readers will recognize their own neighbors, friends, and family members in the endearing animal characters within this forest community. In this second volume, a self-assured fox tries to stay warm with his ridiculously log scarf, but winds up having to deal with the embarrassment of getting caught up in everything... especially embarrassing in front of the pretty lady fox he's trying to impress! A warm-hearted and simple romance tale suitable for all ages. The stories in this four-book series take place in the same forest over the course of four seasons.
Each can be read independently, exploring the complexity and richness of relationships with family, friends, and loved ones. As both writer and illustrator, the author doesn't rely on text to convey emotions, oscillating between a clever dose of dialogue and wordless passages to makes these stories accessible to young readers starting as young as 5 years old. Presenting a graphic universe somewhere between Michel Plessix's adaptations of THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS and the cartoons of Walt Disney (in particular those created by Don Bluth, such as THE RESCUERS and ROBIN HOOD), Dav gently conveys each season through a changing palette of colors and rounded designs.
A Note From the Publisher
• Adorably illustrated and easily accessible, evoking classic 2D Disney feature films, or those by Don Bluth.
• A self-contained tale set within a broader universe of forest characters.
