Deep in the Forest

Written by Josef Antòn | Illustrated by Lucie Brunellière
Abrams Books | March 7, 2017

Deep in the forest, early in the morning, the animals slowly wake—except the panda, who is sleeping in. The monkey stretches, the red ant hides, the black bear yawns, and the gazelle smiles. But where is the okapi? Can you find it?
Over 50 animals—including the okapi—hide on the pages of this beautiful board book. The gorgeous forest scenes take readers from morning to night, from high in the trees to deep underground. Deep in the Forest is as much a visual treat as it is an introduction to exotic animals.

Author Joseph Jacquet (pseudonym Josef Anton), works in animation research and development for French television. He also has a long career in writing books.

Illustrator Lucie Brunellière studied applied arts in Angoul.me and visual communication at the Estienne School. She works at the Museum of Decorative Arts in Strasbourg, France.

REVIEWS

"A pleaser for younger lovers of animals and visual puzzles alike. "Kirkus
 
"Antòn pairs casual observations about the creatures with invitations for readers to locate particular animals in the images and under flaps. Brunellière’s expressive, high-contrast graphics provide lots of eye candy."Publishers Weekly
