When buying a gift for activists, I find it helpful to note the author they are reading, and then hunt for something for children by the same author. When the birthday ot the child of the activists rolls around, I send off the children's book. The child appreciates getting a book his/her parents are really excited about reading to him/her,

I ordered this book for my son and we both loved every bit of it! The story began with wonderful grandmother Johnson who loved to live alone in the forest with one little problem; sometimes she would get lonely. As the story progresses, grandmother Johnson has a journey where she learns that she is not alone. She discovers that all of the magnificent creatures that live around her in the forest are her dear companions and that there was never any need to be lonely. Infused throughout the book is the understanding that we are not alone in the complexity of a beautifully alive world. The illustrations are colorful and artistic and leave the reader with a warm feeling of love and companionship. After my son closed the book, he went outside to look for his friends in the forest too! I loved this book and highly recommend it for all young ones, and old ones too!

Mischief in the Forest is a charming little picture book about a lonely grandmother who learns to come home to the forest around her. It is a book that encourages children to start friendships in the world around them, whether they live in a city, a desert, a forest, or a field.

It is simultaneously touching, sweet, and silly, and beautifully illustrated by Stephanie McMillan.

This book is the perfect story for a child about to perceive the world around us.

Mischief in the Forest: A Yarn Yarn tells the story of a lonely woman that one day realizes that she is all but alone; she is actually surrounded by friends, only that they are non-humans.

The world around us is alive and vivid. Just because you don't have any humans around you doesn't mean that you are alone.
The story is perfect for a young child and the illustrations are colourful and exciting to watch.

I bought a copy of this book for my two-year old relative for Christmas. I believe this will be a wonderful gift and a book that he wants his parents to read over and over again.

What a wonderful book! It made this old uncle smile; it made my niece smile even more! "Mischief in the Forest: A Yarn Yarn" reminds us that we are never truly alone and that we are all part of a living community. I think children grasp this rather naturally... and for us adults, it's a lovely reawakening.

For how wonderfully articulate and on point Jensen is in other works, this book is disappointing. The story line is confusing and the illustrations are unsettling. For some reason I keep reading it though. Perhaps after a few more it will sink in....
