The Great Paper Caper

Publisher: HarperCollins Children's Books

Review

Once upon a time in a forest, many creatures lived happily alongside one another and in harmony with nature, until one day something very strange happened. Branches began to disappear from the trees but, despite careful and thorough investigation, no one could work out what was going on, until an eyewitness spotted a crucial piece of evidence.

In this unusual book, the forest-dwellers team up to discover who is threatening their environment, but when the culprit is apprehended they generously offer their support in helping him solve a difficult problem.

This is an intelligent and entertaining picture book, with unique and fascinating illustrations. It carries a topical ecological message and includes added extras such as instructions for making paper aeroplanes.
