It’s spring! Warm and green, and the great outdoors beckons, especially when you’ve built a fort with your friends to play in. Our Fort is the story of three friends who set out one day to visit their secret fort at the edge of the woods. The weather looks fine but no sooner have they left home and walked into the hills then the sun disappears behind the clouds. Crows fly by, calling, and the wind begins to blow. Suddenly the day turns into night. It’s a storm! Will the friends make it to shelter? Will their fort survive the storm? Marie Dorléans’ illustrations capture the sensory pleasures of nature, as well as its capriciousness, while her story reminds us of the simple joy of being with friends and sharing a great adventure together.
