A touching and inspiring story is told with striking originality. Hannah and Becky are enjoying a happy outing on a boat with Hannah’s dad when disaster strikes. Swept overboard, the girls survive and wake up to find themselves washed ashore in Tasmania. How they survive in the bush relying only on a tiger to help them is a story full of magic, hope and surprise. An exceptional story by an award-winning Australian author.
"Into That Forest" will have the same impact as "Life of Pi", "How I Live Now" and "The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas". Haunting, captivating and totally extraordinary. It reads like a true story - it's in turn wonderful, truly moving and shocking. You'll never forget it.
This novel is narrated by a very elderly lady who tells the story of her own childhood being brought up by tigers in the Tasmanian bush. It will be enjoyed immensely by adult readers just as it will be children aged 10+. You'll find a number of reader reviews by children on the Lovereading4kids site.
This is the story of two girls lost in the Tasmanian bush, saved and raised by two Tasmanian tigers. Our story starts with an old woman, acutely aware of her own Imminent death, looking back on a lifetime ago when death stared her in the face once before. As we hear the story of these two young girls, we marvel as to how they could have survived in the wild for four years. And then we must confront the painful question: how do you return to civilization when something like this has happened?
