Deep in the Forest

Written by Josef Antòn | Illustrated by Lucie Brunellière
Abrams Books | March 7, 2017

Deep in the forest, early in the morning, the animals slowly wake—except the panda, who is sleeping in. The monkey stretches, the red ant hides, the black bear yawns, and the gazelle smiles. But where is the okapi? Can you find it?
Over 50 animals—including the okapi—hide on the pages of this beautiful board book. The gorgeous forest scenes take readers from morning to night, from high in the trees to deep underground. Deep in the Forest is as much a visual treat as it is an introduction to exotic animals.

Author Joseph Jacquet (pseudonym Josef Anton), works in animation research and development for French television. He also has a long career in writing books.

Illustrator Lucie Brunellière studied applied arts in Angoul.me and visual communication at the Estienne School. She works at the Museum of Decorative Arts in Strasbourg, France.

The Heart of the Leopard Children

In The Heart of the Leopard Children, N’Sondé explores the themes of love and pain, belonging and uprooting, desire and fear—all with an implacable and irresistible accuracy. Wilfried N’Sondé’s first novel awakens the reader with an urban symphony of desire and lost love, attuned to the violence that accompanies the struggle for social ascension and a sense of belonging, and the paralyzing sentiment of betrayal that inhabits a young man caught between traditions and cultures.
