A new forest adventure by renowned author Peter Wohlleben and his daughter. Goodness, it's hot! Peter the Forester and Piet the Squirrel are sweating buckets outside the forester's lodge. While Peter has a refreshing ice-cream, the squirrel scuttles off to find a cooler place. On the way, Piet encounters a host of other animals, who describe what they do when they are too hot. The frog leaps into the cold water; the wild boar wallows in a muddly puddle; and the grasshopper hides in the shade of a blade of grass. These tips are no help to Piet, though. Eventually the squirrel reaches the old beech forest. It's so pleasantly cool there… Piet absolutely has to tell his friend Peter about it.
Lift-the-flap book includes fascinating facts about the forest.
