In the Forest is a picture book with a difference - the beautifully constructed pop up pages tell the story of deforestation in a unique and playful way. This extraordinary book creates a way to engage and educate children about the natural world around us whilst maintaining all the fun of a classic pop-up book.
A follow up to the award winning Popville, this 3D delight explores the world of our disappearing rainforests. In the Forest presents a cleverly paper engineered lush green forest, in which a sloth sleeps. Machines come to tear down the trees, but the sloth still sleeps … will he wake up? Turn the pages to see the journey of one sleepy sloth who remains as the forest is destroyed and then reborn.
