Original title: Skogen den grøne
Publisher: Samlaget, 2018
Pages: 61 pages
Critically acclaimed, Ruth Lillegraven, has written a new collection of poetry for children.
What happens when a child follows a quiet trail through into the green woods? How can a birch resemble a girl whose draining water from her hair? And what about the spearing buds, emerging as fairy breath? And the moose floating on the bottomless pond, will he sink to reach the other side of the world?
Ruth Lillegraven writes with delicacy about the small details. The Green Forest trails a child’s wondering gaze through the life and rhythms of nature. As with the Brage-nominated collection of poetry I am I am I am, Lillegraven introduces children to poetry, this time on a journey through the forest.
The book is illustrated by award-winning Mari Kanstad Johnsen.
