The School in the Forest

L'école buissonnière

Takayo Akiyama

Cambourakis | May 2014 | 24 pages | 13,5 x 33 cm | hardcover

Cross with the other children for making fun of his ginger hair, a little boy runs away from school… And bumps into a sausage-stealing fox who proves to be far friendlier than his classmates. And so, in the space of a little enchanted interlude, he goes to school in the forest, where he learns first-hand some basic truths that help him return to the real world feeling more serene… Page by page, nature changes and the seasons roll by – as though one year had passed by in a day, in a dreamlike adventure that allows the child to forget his sadness and make peace with himself.
