The grizzled grist does not exist! / written by Juliette MacIver ; illustrated by Sarah Davis

MacIver, Juliette, 1972- (author.). Davis, Sarah, 1971- (illustrator.).


An exuberant rhyming picture book about a school trip to the woods, where no one sees the danger--apart from quiet Liam, who pays attention and saves the day with his particular skill of hiding. It's the class trip to Dismal Hills wilderness. The children aren't worried about the legendary Grizzled Grist who lives here; they're excited to show off their outdoor skills--foraging, climbing, trapping. No one's impressed with Liam's skill of hiding. But it turns out a hider can see what others think does not exist. A hider moves with soundless ease and treads as softly as the breeze. At times, a hider barely breathes--but what is this the hider sees? When the children and their frazzled teacher walk confidently into disaster, little Liam saves the day--a triumph for the quiet child no one notices.
