Elsa Beskow's books have been beloved by children for over 100 years. This one details the adventure of some tiny forest folk, Woody and Little Pip, as they wander away from home one blustery autumn day, causing much distress to their poor mother, Mrs. Acorn. As she laments to her friend Mrs. Hazelnut over coffee, Mr. Squirrel stops by and offers to help find the naughty children. But little does he know that little Hazel has hidden herself in his bushy tail and comes along for the search! He discovers the stowaway later and tells Hazel to stay put while he does the searching. Of course, curiosity gets the best of her and she wanders around the forest, meeting many of the other inhabitants and dealing with her own challenges as she searches for her friends. All is well in the end and the children turn up safe and sound, much to their mother’s relief!
