Counter Courage takes a mouse on a wonderful journey

I had always been afraid of the forest, that dark and unknown

place at the farthest edge of my little world. At night I often dreamed of it and woke chilled with fear. The fear was there in the day, too, hidden inside me no matter what I did or where I went. One night the fear pressed so heavily on me that I could bear it no longer.

So begins a journey of discovery for a brave little mouse who decides he must leave the safety of home to explore the forest. The world he finds is not at all what he expected.

With luminous illustrations and graceful prose, The Forest broadens the reader’s world, speaking eloquently and reassuringly to every child who has ever felt afraid of the unknown.
