Publisher Comments:

Old Mrs. Johnson lives alone in the forest and loves to knit sweaters and mittens for her grandchildren in the city. One day, when returning from a visit to the city, her solitude comes to an end when her mischievous forest neighbors reveal themselves in a delightfully colorful fashion—someone took her yarn. The colorful mystery is solved when the birds, rabbits, snakes, trees, and other dwellers of Mrs. Johnson's neighborhood are seen playing with the yarn. Suddenly the forest doesn't seem so lonely, and the visiting grandkids take great delight getting to know its inhabitants. This picture book is a lesson for both young and old to connect with one's surroundings and embrace the role of good neighbors with the rest of the natural world, whether in the city or in the forest.

Owen Lloyd, January 28, 2012 (view all comments by Owen Lloyd)
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.
