In Little Evie In The Dark Wood, she excels herself with a simple story that takes Little Red Riding
Hood as its starting point but moves in an unexpected and beguiling direction. Little Evie, dressed in a red coat, skips over the stile at the end of the path and enters the unchartered territory of the wild wood. She has with her a picnic basket. The animals in the wood all sound a warning, but who is Evie likely to run into and what will happen when she does?
The beautiful text is a perfect foil for Catherine Hyde's illustrations, broad canvasses full of earthy tones that hum with life and colour. A perfect little treat of a book. Read it at bedtime or take with you on a picnic and share in the great outdoors.
