A young girl shares stories and facts about the woods near her home while catching up with her mischievous dog, Peppermint.

When her dog Peppermint wanders off, this little girl isn’t too worried; they both know their way around the woods. On her way to find Peppermint, she regales us with stories and information about the area, from encounters with spiny porcupines and protective mother coyotes all the way back to the mile-thick glaciers that shaped the landscape. Parts of the story are highlighted with art-within-art glimpses of the girl’s journal, where she’s captured her exploits in drawings.

Author-illustrator Maxwell Eaton is back with another genre-bending picture book full of fun facts and witty asides. Detailed illustrations bring wild critters to life and keep the reader guessing what’s next. Any young reader with an interest in science and the natural world will want to hike out into the forest with Peppermint and her humans.
