'A Forest' By Marc Martin

This gorgeous book by Australian illustrator Marc Martin, tells the story of a forest and what happens when people become greedy and take more than they should. Yet despite this, the book is still filled with hope, pinned on just one little tree...

There once was a forest, then a person came along and cut down a tree. Then people became greedy and brought in trucks and power saws and stopped replacing the trees they had cut down. Buildings were built where the trees used to be, the weather changed and people began to suffer. But there was still hope...

Using a combination of watercolour, ink, pencil, textures and computer graphics, the beautiful illustrations perfectly bring the story to life. You can get your own copy of 'A Forest' here.
