Grade 1-3 Walking through the woods with his father, a young boy feels transformed as he experiences the freedom of a fox' speed, an eagle's view, and the abilities of other animals. He wishes that his father knew of his metamorphoses, until he realizes, seeing a look that is as ``old and deep as the woods'' in his father's eyesthe same look that he had seen in a deer's eyesthat his father holds the same power. Whether the boy is actually transformed or is just imagining it is never stated, and the possibility weaves a magic spell over readers and listeners. Hays' oil paintings on textured board in autumnal colors startlingly reveal the boy's transformations. This book revels in the power and freedom of nature and the release that it can provide and in the bonds between father and son. The mystical element is sure to capture the wonderment of young readers and listeners, who will be able to feel the strength and the energy of the natural world.
