Beyond the Forest

Beyond the Forest


Text: Nadine Robert

Illustrations: Gérard DuBois


Arthur’s dad has a big idea: build a tower to see what is on the other side of the forest. It’s a plan that will involve a lot of effort. They both work tirelessly, and the villagers do their part. The tower takes shape, and the surprise that awaits them makes it all worth the effort.
