In Children Of The Forest we are taken into a magical land where a family of tiny people live in the forest throught the year and frollick with the animals.
Deep in the roots of an old pine tree live the children of the forest. Playing hide-and-seek with the squirrels, snowballing in the winter, each season brings its own adventures - but perhaps spring holds the best surprise of all.
Spoiler alert: A sneaky viper meets his untimely demise at the hands of Poppa's spear. It ain't pretty, but the children were in danger!
