Blue Forest, by Luke Fischer
$ 15.95
The Blue Forest is a collection of seven highly imaginative bedtime stories one story for each night of the week, and each story featuring one of seven colors. The stories, set in a magical blue forest, tell of mysterious nighttime events and relationships involving humans and animals and nature.

In the first story, a small girl, wearing a dress as white as the stars and embroidered with fine golden thread, walks a path through the forest of blue trees. While making her way through the silent woods, she discovers a casket of jewels from which she selects a silver ring. As she places it on her finger it twinkles in unison with a star, which just at that moment peers through the foliage of a nearby tree. In the last story an old woman tends a garden where the flowers unfold at nightfall to greet the stars. While the old woman sings and plants blue seedlings, a pink butterfly alights on her head. When she turns back to the garden path to her house, the pink butterfly flutters off into the dark woods, arriving at a simple hut where a girl in a white dress with golden embroidery sleeps. The seventh story thus joins the tales into a circle.
