Alone in the Forest

Alone in the Forest

A powerful and sensitive exploration of the psychology of fear, 'Alone in the Forest' is the story of how a small boy overcomes what he is afraid of.

The book is illustrated by the well-known Gond tribal artist Bhajju Shyam, from Madhya Pradesh in central India. The Gonds are a community of highly visual people, who were traditionally forest dwellers, and the inspiration from this story came from Bhajju’s stories of his own childhood.

The cover was designed by Nia Murphy, and the book was released in the UK & Europe via Bounce Sales & Marketing in September 2013.
