Discover the magical world of forests, from the inner workings of trees to the legends of ancient woodlands

Delve into the intriguing world of forests, and discover how they work, the animals they protect, and their millennia-long relationship with humans. Learn the science behind a single tree and the magical stories told about forests around the world, as well as how you could improve your well-being with a trip among the trees.

What goes on inside a tree? Can trees communicate with each other? Why are rainforests called the lungs of the Earth? What is tree bathing? All these questions and many more are covered in this practical guide to everything there is to know about forests and how important they are to us.

Readers will be led into the depths of forests thousands of years old, and learn about unbelievable natural phenomena, such as the forests that have wandered away from their original homes. As well as the scientific side of forests, this book will delve into the stories people tell about forests, from fairies and the tales of the Brothers Grimm, to fearsome beasts and the real-life historical figures who have explored the most dense and mysterious woodlands. This book is ideal for children with an interest in nature, geography, and legends, and anyone who wants to learn all about the science and history behind forests. It is the follow up title to Vicky Woodgate’s popular The Magic of Sleep and The Magic of Seasons.
