The Woodland Light

Mur ja metsän valo

This beautiful new collection of ten calm and meaningful bedtime stories from the Nordic woodland follows the success of ‘The Woodland Night’; Dutch, Italian, Hungarian, Estonian, and Polish rights have already been sold!

Each story in this collection explores the theme of light in unique way, guiding readers and listeners on a journey through the forest alongside a bear cub, a moose, and other familiar woodland creatures. Sometimes, it’s the faintest glimmer of light that ma-nages to illuminate what truly matters, and at other times, we must wait for it to get dark before we can see the light.

‘The Woodland Night is able to tell you how to gently guide your soul in difficult situations. Each story is cathartic.’ – Ildikó Boldizsár, author, editor, fairytale therapist, Hungary

’This volume of gentle, philosophical bedtime stories is a visual delight. The worlds of the stories are depicted with delectable colours and design language.’ – Book Art Committee, Finland about ‘The Woodland Night’
