Mina

A picture book by Matthew Forsythe.

Matthew Forsythe

From the creator of the acclaimed and beloved Pokko and the Drum comes an emotionally resonant, "richly imagined"  picture book about trust, worry, and loyalty between a father and daughter.

Mina and her father live in a hollowed-out tree stump on the edge of a pond on the edge of a forest. Nothing ever bothers Mina, until one day, her father brings home a suspicious surprise from the woods.

Should Mina trust her father — or listen to her own instincts? (From Paula Wiseman Books)

Mina is for ages 4 to 8.

Matthew Forsythe is the Toronto-born author-illustrator of Pokko and the Drum, a Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year, a recipient of the Boston Globe–Horn Book Award Honor, and a Charlotte Zolotow Honor Book.
