This stunning gift book, with hand-cut paper art and lyrical text by an award-winning poet, leads you deep into the forest . . . and out again into the light. Listen: the forest is calling. Take a quiet walk through the woods, where shadows fall in the darkness, eyes peek out, and some animals sleep while others run and leap. Simple, poetic text and intricate papercut illustrations introduce children to a deer, black rook, fox, rabbit, and many more beautiful creatures as they wait for morning--and spring--to come.
