Praise for Hunters of the Great Forest

“*In this wordless picture book, a small hunting party, lightly equipped but deeply determined, departs from its quaint village . . . While you may need to curb kids from leaving treats around to lure the hunting party out again, they'll certainly be delighted with this alternative take on hunter/gathering.” —BCCB, STARRED REVIEW

“Nolan's latest wordless picture book features seven intrepid gnomish creatures who brave the wilderness in search of a sweet prize . . . This is sure to be popular with fans of David Weisner's Mr. Wuffles and Flotsam, as well as Aaron Becker's Journey.” —Booklist

“An intrepid band conquers a rugged landscape to capture an unusually tasty conquest in this funny, wordless story . . . Quite a treat!” —Kirkus Reviews

“*In this wordless picture book, insect-sized explorers set off from their village to go on an adventure . . . A good adventure story that's silly and original.” —School Library Journal, STARRED REVIEW
