A Walk in the Forest is a stunning invitation to discover the woods as a place for both imaginative play and contemplation: collect pinecones, feathers, or stones; follow the tracks of a deer; or listen to the chirping of birds and the whisper of trees. Build a shelter and play hide-and-seek. Pretend the woods are a jungle, or shout out loud to stir up the birds! The forest comes alive in all its mysterious glory in Maria Dek's charming watercolor images and poetic text.


Maria Dek is an illustrator based in Gdansk, Poland. She holds degrees from both the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw and University of the Arts, London. She has written and illustrated three children's books, and her illustration clients include cultural and educational institutions. A Walk in the Forest is her first book to be translated into English.


Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly:

"Dek's invitation to explore the forest's magic and to leave behind civilization, vehicles, technology---even other people---feels honest and strikingly personal. Her story itself is a journey."

Learning magazine:

"Revel in the woods as a magical place for play and exploration. Discover the forest in all its mysterious glory with this book."

The New York Times Book Review :

"The sensory pleasures of the woods are on display in A Walk in the Forest, a quietly beautiful book written and illustrated by Maria Dek."
