Save Our Forest!

La skogen leve!

When Bao finds out that the adults have decided to turn the forest close to the school into a parking lot, she realizes that she’s the one who must act! With her best friends Tuva and Linnea along her side, Bao organizes a protest for saving the forest. Do Abdi and the other boys in class really understand why it’s so important to save the forest? And how do you make the adults understand the seriousness of the situation when you’re 12 years old?

Save Our Forest! is a stand-alone follow-up to the acclaimed and awarded Cross My Heart and Hope to Die.

A story about being big enough to be aware of how to act, but too young to be taken seriously.
