From the pen of one of the gentlest, most profound writers of our times comes this novel about a woods that has been stunned into silence by grief. A group of children want the woods to overcome its muteness; they want birds to sing and human voices to carry across distances. The schemes they devise and the adventures they embark upon make up the gentle surface of this story. What lies beneath is the deepest human philosophy.
