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.

The French duo of Antòn and Brunellière creates a bustling forest for readers to explore in this oversize board book. Settingwise, its a mishmash: although the translation makes repeated references to a forest, the stylish artwork pictures something more resembling a jungle, and the animals (among them pandas, giraffes, and toucans) dont live anywhere near each other in reality, which has the potential to confuse readers. Antòn pairs casual observations about the creatures with invitations for readers to locate particular animals in the images and under flaps. Brunellières expressive, high-contrast graphics provide lots of eye candy, even if the book isnt of much use from a zoological perspective. Ages 35. (Mar.)
