KIRKUS REVIEW

The Haunted Forest is deceptively barren of all ominous or ghoulish phenomena. The day Andy takes this route to Grandfather's house, he discovers a friendly conglomeration of ice cream trees, marble and bubble-bearing groves, musical instruments growing in place of apples. No more onlooker, Andy climbs atop the oak tree and is shifted 12 giant steps, swings around the maypole tree and emerges from the forest weighed down by an assortment of souvenirs. In contrast to the sweeping fantasy, the illustrations in 3 colors envision a mechanized forest and a rather stilted Andy.
