This book is based off fairy tales and about a boy who wakes up to find his dad gone and mom sad without knowing why. When asked to take some cake to his sick grandma, he is told not to go into the forest but chooses to go there anyway where he comes across some interesting characters that will remind one of long ago fairy tales. The pictures are quite graphic and also have hidden pictures in them. This tale could be used more in a comparative and teaching lesson than simply a fun children's story.
