Deep in the roots of an old pine tree live the children of the forest. Playing hide-and-seek with the squirrels, snow-balling in winter, each season brings its own adventures, but perhaps spring holds the best surprise of all. Colour illustrated. For ages 3-5 years.
Elsa Beskow (1874-1953) is the most popular childrens illustrator in Sweden, where her picture books have been known and loved for over a century.
