Treasures from the Forest is a small collection of folktales from native indigenous Brazil, retold by the author as she remembers it from her own childhood. In an attempt to keep these stories alive and present in an increasingly globalized media, she decided to collect and bring them to the European reader.
The book is an ode to a mystical childhood and a thank you to the author’s culture and roots. The tales are accompanied by the author’s own animated illustrations.
